What is Sustainability Foundations?

The course introduces learners to the concept that our world is made up of interconnected systems, governed by natural principles, and the impact that their choices have on these systems. It gives students many opportunities to practise making sustainable choices, reinforcing the concept that they have agency to create sustainable change.

An online interactive provides pupils with an engaging lesson which they can use in class or at home. Built-in assessments and real-time grading help keep track of your students’ progress.

Plants, Animals and Our World course can (optionally) be delivered as a follow up to this course.
