The Australian Government commissioned the Australian Research Institute in Education for Sustainability (ARIES) at Macquarie University to conduct research into how to move beyond simply raising awareness to achieve the attitudinal and behavioural changes necessary to live sustainably.
Priorities were established through national coordination. Research projects were identified and managed by the Department.
The research program identified key factors and impediments influencing education for sustainability, evaluate existing approaches, and developed effective educational materials and programs to promote behaviour change towards the sustainable practices.
