    OntarioLearn description: In education for sustainability it is important for one to understand if they are a part of or apart from nature through what is included in, or excluded from, the curricula they encounter in their respective educational journeys. General principles of sustainability are explored by students who reflect on the implications it has in their own lives and learn about the importance of its inclusion within the curriculum. They hone their active critical-thinking, problem-solving and reflective skills and practices as they explore a variety of topics, including the concepts of limits and unsustainability, ecological identity, worldviews, ecological footprint, sense of place and space, engaging nature as a teacher, systems thinking and our responsibilities as good global citizens.
