Abstract: This paper explores the connections between sustainable literacy and climate change. It describes the role of engagement and partnerships and outlines the role which can be played by projects. The pedagogical point made in the paper is that how and why we teach is as significant as what we teach and the knowledge, skills, and ability to understand and act in favour of sustainability can be usefully generated in processes of engagement with the immediate and complex problems that beset local communities.
