Abstract
The educational challenge of sustainability remains unexplored in the development of children in the K-12 curriculum in the United States and potentially in the educational curriculum of many of the member states of the United Nations. Using a case study method, this chapter shows how sustainability can be an educational value and a public good, transmitted to students through everyday instruction. By conducting a regional analysis in specific cultural groupings, using fieldwork and applied research methodology, students can demonstrate competence for sustainable education on a whole host of issues relevant for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG 2030). With younger age groups consisting of students in middle and elementary school, the chapter examines an activity-based approach for socializing young children to issues of sustainability and preparing them for what is known as “the fourth industrial revolution.” Finally, it is imperative that corporations adopt a socially responsible approach towards investing that is environmentally conscious of long-term governance impact.
