SEPN’s research examines sustainability in education policies and practices in kindergarten to grade 12 and post-secondary education in Canada with the goal of enabling educational change for a more sustainable future.

As part of this research, SEPN is conducting site analyses of 6 provinces and territories at both the K-12 and PSE levels to explore the relationships between sustainability policies and practices. The site analyses include individual interviews and focus groups with educators and administrators.

Conversation Cafés are also being organized to engage community members in a discussion on how the education system is contributing to a more sustainable future. Below are details for the various Conversation Cafés (will be updated as new Cafés are organized).
