The Development of Sustainable Education at South China Normal University

An international partnership is working with Chinese schools to advance sustainable education in China. South China Normal University (SCNU) is one of the leading pedagogical universities in Guangdong.

Educators in China, Japan, and the US are sharing best practices, developing sustainable curriculums and encouraging student involvement. SCNU is working with ISC, Local Ecological Activities Foundation for Children (LEAF) of Japan, and Shelburne Farms of the United States, to adapt cutting edge practices in sustainable development education to the Chinese context.

A series of local and international exchanges are connecting Chinese educators with teachers around the world exposing them to new methods and information. The best sustainable development education information will be adapted and incorporated into teacher training, curriculum development, resource guides and practical projects.

International efforts in support of universities like SCNU demonstrate how the transfer of knowledge is helping Chinese schools to develop sustainable education programs.
