This document has been developed as part of the MDBfutures research project ‘Towards Place Based Education in the Murray Darling Basin.’ The project explores the ways in which sustainability is understood in Murray Darling Basin (MDB) communities (including Indigenous, rural, small towns and regional centres); how it is presented in Murray Darling Basin Authority (MDBA) education programs, and the ways it is currently taught in schools in the MDB region. Upon identifying the various perspectives on sustainability the project will examine how MDBA education programs and the Australian Curriculum, including its cross curriculum priorities of Sustainability and Indigenous perspectives, can best be adapted through place-based education to incorporate local knowledge in education
