Abstract

Outlines Scottish national policy guidelines on 'education for sustainable development' (environmental education for ages 5-14) and implications for primary schools. Describes a 2-year project in which a research team helped staff at an elementary school to articulate their own understanding of environmental education and develop whole-school strategies to implement the guidelines.
