Abstract

Historically, sustainability education is a call to responsible action based on rational principles drenched in an ethic of care. How can we enhance the quality of human life without also enhancing the quality and robustness of the natural systems that support our life? We can't. Our interdependence is inevitable. The cross-curricululum priority (CCP) males it clear the sustainability is not an add-on. The CCP is constructed as an integrating principle and body of knowledge, understandings and skills within the constituted disciplines with which we are so familiar.
