    Abstract

    Sustainability is an important issue for 21st century society but Education for Sustainability remains a peripheral activity in schools dealing with a heavily crowded curriculum. Indications from schools where Education for Sustainability has been successfully implemented through the Australian Sustainable Schools Initiative (AuSSI) are that Education for Sustainability programs also make a significant contribution to the health and well being of the students, staff and general community of the schools. The evidence reported here suggests that greater analysis of a connection between Education for Sustainability and the indicators of strong social capital may give Education for Sustainability a greater priority in the crowded curriculum.
