In the context of the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals, this chapter explores how teachers might support children and young people in learning for sustainability. Taking as its starting point that teachers have a responsibility for supporting learning in this area, the chapter considers the ways in which teachers' practice in learning for sustainability might benefit from facilitating practical philosophy with their pupils. By way of illustrating the potential impact practical philosophy for/with children and young people may have on the learning of teachers and pupils, the chapter draws on teachers' reflections on their practice following an introductory short course on facilitating practical philosophy.
