Sustainable Schools: Best Practices Guide

In 2008, the Ministry of Education developed a Sustainability Education Framework that encourages the K-12 education system to show leadership in adopting and promoting

  • environmentally sustainable practices, and

  • learning opportunities for students that support healthy and natural

    environments for current and future generations. 

The framework will help ensure that all K-12 students in BC are being educated about sustainable living. It supports a whole-school approach that includes students, teachers, support staff, administrators, and parents in addressing sustainability issues.
