LSF’s mission is to promote, through education, the knowledge, skills, values, perspectives, and practices essential to a sustainable future.
LSF’s goal is to work together with educators, students, parents, government, community members and business leaders to integrate the concepts and principles of sustainable development into education policy, school curricula, teacher education, and lifelong learning across Canada
LSF is powered by a team of experienced and dedicated staff, including expert education consultants from across the country. We also have a strong Board of Directors representing government, educators, industry, civil society and youth; experienced staff; consultants and partners across the country; classroom teachers; and graduate researchers from leading Canadian universities.
LSF facilitates the delivery of sustainable development education programs and resources to teachers and students across Canada.
The Secret to Our Success
LSF believes that building comprehensive programs starts with building a solid base. LSF’s core program strengths are linked in an Integrated Framework that includes four areas:
- Advancing Education Policy, Standards and Good Practice
- Reorienting Teaching and Learning
- Fostering Sustainable Communities – Linking Education to Action
- Supporting Collaborative Initiatives, Networks and Champions
How We Work
In 2015 the United Nations General Assembly committed to 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that represent a new agenda to end poverty, promote prosperity, and improve people’s wellbeing—while protecting the planet—by the year 2030. The SDGs align with LSF’s holistic view of sustainability, and we have incorporated them throughout our work.
