Education for Sustainable Development has increasingly taken on importance around the world over the past decade. The Earthducation project is examining intersections between education and sustainability in climate hotspots on all the continents, with six field expeditions completed to date. While in the field, the team is documenting local culture, environmental issues, and educational practices, and collecting video narratives from a diverse spectrum of individuals discussing the role of, and intersections between, education and sustainability. Media and data are being shared in an online learning environment while the team is in the field. In addition, the general public has been contributing their own perspectives on these issues via self-posted videos within an online EnviroNetwork. Data gathered to date illustrate both how education can influence sustainability in different regions of the world, and the complexities that geographical location and culture bring to this topic.
