Over the past several decades the international community has identified education and capacity building as critical components in helping to shift societies toward sustainable development in a global context. However, despite calls for fostering curriculum design around education for sustainability, colleges and universities have been slow to formulate ideas and approaches to teaching. This paper introduces a collaborative educational partnership which attempts to weave in the various components connected to education for sustainability. Transformative learning theory is used together with other frameworks to guide the program and evaluate the learning outcomes of students.
