Brock Corydon School is committed to integrate sustainability topics, issues, and approaches into classroom activities.


It is our goal that our students will become informed and responsible decision-makers, playing active roles as citizens of Canada and the world, and will contribute to social, environmental, and economic well-being, and an equitable quality of life for all, now and in the future. We want to prepare our students to live sustainably and to establish life-long sustainable development practices.

Education for Sustainable Development involves incorporating key themes of sustainable development – such as poverty alleviation, human rights, health and environmental protection, climate change – into the education system. ESD is a complex and evolving concept and requires learning about key themes from a social, cultural, environmental and economic perspective and explores how those factors are inter-related and inter-dependent.

The ESD initiative in Manitoba is linked to the Decade of Education for Sustainable Development, a project of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
