Abstract

In this chapter we show how a relational ontology can underpin education for sustainability, by locating the learning process within children’s own place and community. We show how an open, inquiry-based, relational approach can lead the children into a deeper understanding of the place and community that sustains them, and ultimately into a deeper sense of stewardship for that place. We show that sustainability education and values education can support each other.
