Acting Sustainably, Living Peacefully


Acting Sustainably, Living Peacefully is a work in progress, literally and philosophically. No resource could capture the full breadth of the issues and concerns that underlie the themes of “Peace” and “Environment”. However, this resource opens a small window of possibilities on living sustainably and harmoniously. Future decision-makers will have the responsibility of ensuring equitable access to resources such as food and water, if we are to live in a peaceful environment. As teachers, we always strive to create opportunities to empower youth – now and with a view to the future.
