Background to the coalition.

The Coalition exists to champion education for sustainable development [ESD] in the region. It was established in 2004 and has grown through the voluntary efforts of members and supportive institutions since that time.

The glue that binds SWLfSC together is, firstly, a shared conviction that sustainable development is a priority, and that learning is the key to this; and, secondly, commonly-held values around the importance of education, the need to promote systems thinking and active citizenship, and the central importance of co-operation across interests and communities.
