In the Spotlight: SEPN


Mar 2016


SEPN2The Sustainability and Education Policy Network (SEPN) is leading a national research study that examines the relationships between sustainability policies and practices in early childhood to grade 12 and post-secondary education in Canada. The study includes: 1) an analysis of existing educational policies; 2) a national survey; and 3) in-depth site analyses at 12 sites to examine sustainability practices and experiences. To mobilize the research findings, various tools such as academic papers, research briefs, infographics, media products, and events have been created for educators, policymakers, and researchers to enhance education practice and policy. For more information, research and tools visit
