National Updates

These two new ECEfS publications will be available later this year to assist with implementation of the new EYLF V2 sustainability principle.

·- Davis, J. & Elliott, S. (Eds.) (in press). Young children and the environment: Early education for sustainability (3rd edn.). Cambridge University Press.

·- Elliott, S. & Davis, J. (in press). Early Childhood Australia Essentials: Sustainability in early childhood. Early Childhood Australia.

The Alliance of ECEfS networks across Australia has begun meeting to share ideas about professional learning and resourcing to promote the new sustainability principle. While there is much to celebrate here, we have identified some gaps that need to be addressed to support implementation. Lisa Sonter, at QECSN is leading this national initiative.
