  6. 6. Sustainability as Transformative Education q  Education “about” Sustainability Accommodating… is an awareness lesson or theoretical discussion (emphasis on content, information, knowledge… easily integrated into curricula and existing paradigms … may not change values and behaviours). q  Education “for” Sustainability Adaptive – Learning for change … is the use of education as a tool to achieve sustainability (includes knowledge, values and skills … reorientation of curricula but within existing paradigms... values contradictions between theory and practice) q  Education “as” Sustainability Transformative – Learning AS Change … Emphasis on process, quality learning, development of the whole person, involvement of the whole school community, and transformative learning experiences. Schools provide the role model for sustainable practices through values & behaviour, holistic learning experiences, and participative, collaborative, shared leadership / decisionmaking.

  22. 22. The Compass School Approach n  n  A Compass School puts the four dimensions and five portals into practice by involving the whole school community – students, teachers and other staff, members of the local community, parents, local authorities, local media and businesses. It encourages teamwork and helps to create a shared understanding of what it takes to manage and run a school in a way that contributes to sustainable development at every level – global, local, and personal.
  23. 23. Case Study – PTIS International School – Chiang Mai, Thailand “The Compass is simple. I can go in depth into discussions with students and it’s really easy to manage.” - 5th Grade teacher n  n  n  Curriculum planning. Teachers have used the Compass to guide lesson plans for reading, writing, math, science, history and other subjects. Teachers have found it gives them the opportunity to be more creative with their lessons by thinking “outside the box.” Strategic planning. Teachers, faculty, parents and student representatives used the compass to look at sustainability within their whole school community. The initial process took the form of a whole-day school workshop and provided practical discussion around sustainability in their school context. One positive result of the planning was that energy use was cut which ended up saving the school money. School lunch. The 4th year students used the Compass as a lens to look at the school lunch menu. As a result, the menu is more healthy and the school now buys more fruits and vegetables from the local community, which has reduced school cafeteria costs.
  24. 24. Case Study – The Prem Tridhos International School – Chiang Mai, Thailand n  n  Science fair. Students used the Compass in small groups to design projects for the school science fair. Community projects. Secondary school students used the Compass to develop the “Adopt a Dog” project to help a population of stray dogs at a local temple. Prior to the project, the dogs were running loose in the community, howling and barking, and posing health problems – the situation affected the happiness of the community local businesses. The students used the Compass to design and carry out the project through community donations and a partnership with a local ngo. The dogs they have helped are now healthy, well fed and many neutered.
  25. 25. In Conclusion . . . . q  q  q  A Compass School is simply a school that takes its role and responsibility for helping to build a sustainable global human society very seriously. A Compass School actively integrates and infuses sustainability education into all aspects of the school, including its vision and mission (education), decisionmaking, its management and operations, the school buildings, the school culture and its external relationships with its surrounding community and others, by using the Compass tool/ lens to do so. A Compass School takes a Whole School Approach to Sustainability Education

This framework and worksheets will support practitioners in doing the thinking and task-planning necessary at nearly every step of the process. But they do not impose an overly strict set of categories or linear sequence. Practitioners are expected to determine for themselves what the most appropriate timing, level of complexity, etc. should be for a particular initiative or project. ”

  72. 72. Sustainable Phuket Initiative Developing Sustainability Indicator Framework Phuket Sustainability Indicator Report SEEKing a Sustainable Phuket Phuket Sustainability Indicator Report 2013 Nature Aspect 1 Coastal Management / Sustainable Beach Program Why this issue important for Phuket’s Sustainability? Phuket Sustainability Indicator Report was presented to the Phuket Governor on 22 November 2013…. The Challenge: Phuket’s coastal marine environment, particularly its famous beaches and water quality are in a state of degradation and decline. Our Goal: Phuket’s coastal environment enjoys continuous excellent water quality, with clean beaches that exhibit a natural condition to a large extent. Proposed Strategy: Empower and enable community volunteer groups to take ownership and responsibility for beach conditions and water quality monitoring, and education for fishing fleet on waste proper management. Sustainability Indicators: Marine Water Quality Index (BOD, PH, Fecal Coliform) Beach Quality Index (5 star system) Tourism is one of two mainstays of the Phuket economy, and almost all tourists come to Phuket for its famous white sand beaches and clean, aqua blue marine waters. These natural treasures are directly influenced by coastal development planning, pollution, construction, zoning law enforcement, business licensing, density of vendors, and litter management, to name but a few. If Phuket’s beaches are consumed by litter, extensions of restaurants and bungalows, lounge chairs and umbrellas, vendors and jet skis, the accumulative effect will soon overwhelm nature’s resilience mechanisms. It will not be too long before Phuket will lose the very attributes that its success has been built upon. Not to say that tourism will stop, but most likely the outdoor activity and nature related tourism will be replaced by another type of tourism that we all do not want. What is the Trend? The Phuket Marine Biological Center has implemented a coastal environment monitoring program for 23 stations along the coastline of Phuket. Some principal parameters collected for every 2 months include salinity, temperature, pH, dissolve oxygen, suspended sediment, nutrients and total coliform bacteria. The result found that Marine water quality was generally found in good condition, except in some stations and during certain period of time that the quality was in fair or poor conditions.
