  Environmental Action Guide
Learning for a Sustainable Future
Learning for a Sustainable Future (LSF) is a non-profit organization whose goal is to work together with educators, students, parents, government, community and business to integrate the concepts and principles of sustainable development into education policy, school curricula, teacher education and lifelong learning across Canada.

LSF brings the student and adult members of school eco-action teams to conferences to work with resource people in their community on developing plans for action. The conference workshops provide opportunities for teachers to receive ideas, skills and activities to help with the important job of mentoring an eco-team.

For more information about LSF visit: www.lsf-lst.ca or contact: tburgess@lsf-lst.ca
