Sustainability initiatives in early years settings

By Melinda Miller

Abstract

Children bring much knowledge about sustainability issues into the early childhood classroom. In recent times, I have overheard children as young as three years of age discuss events such as the BP Oil Spill in American waters and extreme weather patterns. While aspects of these events can be overwhelming, responding to children's existing knowledge allows for an educative approach to sustainability issues, and a focus on the multitude of ways individuals and communities are working to create positive change
