Sustainability education develops skills, knowledge and values that promote behaviour in support of a sustainable environment. It is not confined to formal schooling. It also occurs in a wide range of non-formal education settings at work and at home.

From 2002 to 2011, the Australian Government was actively involved in sustainability education.

Information and documents relating to Sustainability Education produced between 2002 and 2011 are now available in the National Library's Australian Government web archive.
