Pacific forever : an education for sustainable development resource [draft]

One of the greatest challanges we face in protecting our islands biodiversity is how to balance the needs of the people that use it, and the future of the environment. There are many reasons why the Pacific islands way of life is endangered, it is
necessary to address these threats, all of them. Understand ing their causes will help to stop them, if it is possible or to change or adapt our way of life. It is necessary to focus on long term sustainability strategies, but in the mean time develop and carry out short term projects to address the immediate needs of our islands.
As educators you can actively participate in the islands ecosystems, traditions and way of life protection by engaging your students in a productive and active learning experience about what the Pacific islands are facing.
