Resources for Rethinking

Resources for Rethinking (R4R), a project of Learning for a Sustainable Future (LSF), provides teachers access to materials that integrate ecological, social and economic spheres through active, relevant, interdisciplinary learning. We call this learning Education for Sustainable Development (ESD).

ESD promotes respect for universal human rights, cultural diversity, greater care of life and the protection of Earth’s ecosystems, and a commitment to build a global culture of tolerance and peace.
