This paper reports outcomes for Early Childhood (EC) students after engagement in an Education for Sustainability (EfS) program. The research was conducted at an independent school located in the Perth metropolitan area of Western Australia. Three student-driven EfS projects, on issues of concern to young children, are examined. These projects are located at the school and in the nearby wetlands: biological survey, reed planting and turtle nest-watch. Findings indicated that participation in EfS projects was an effective, meaningful approach to achieving potent, enjoyable, hands-on action in real-life local contexts.
