Abstract: It is thought that whole school approaches to environmental education, where sustainability principles and processes are embedded into curriculum, grounds and resource management are a way of enacting cultural change towards more sustainable societies. Despite official encouragement in Australia, only some schools are reported to have adopted a whole school approach. This paper reports on the plans adopted by teachers in one school, providing an overview of the thinking and processes they put into practice over a period of four years, to implement co-ordinated whole school environmental education.
