Western have a deep commitment to our student experience and to preparing our graduates for success in an ever changing world. The international field of "Education for Sustainability" (EfS) has emerged in response to urgent requirements for critical global citizenship. EfS places an emphasis on the necessary interrelationships between theory and practice; local and global scales and present and future. It provides the thinking skills and capabilities to equip learners to take critically informed action towards sustainable futures.
