Education for Sustainable Development
Working in local schools, ISC helped prepare the next generation of Chinese citizens to safeguard their environment. The Education for Sustainable Development program was led by a three-way partnership between educators in China, Japan and the United States. Together, they shared best practices and developed a series of activities that encouraged students to get involved hands-on in energy efficiency projects in their communities. In addition to demonstrating, both to themselves and to their older peers, that young people have a real contribution to make in improving their communities, this experience also informed a new curriculum on sustainable development that will benefit children in all three countries.
