“Stephen is an inspiration to the work we do at the Earth Charter Center for Education for Sustainable Development. His research, writing, and leadership in the education for sustainable development field have greatly influenced our work and my own thinking. For those of us who work on ESD, Stephen is a leading light and belongs to a select group of pioneers in the important work of educating for sustainability and fostering future generations of sustainability thinkers and leaders.”

Mirian Vilela, Executive Director, Earth Charter International

“Stephen’s work has provided a foundational framework for the field of Sustainability Education internationally. His work is not only immensely inspiring, it provides practical tools for changing the way we teach and learn in order to create a more sustainable, regenerative world. It has been influential to hundreds of graduate students in the Leadership for Sustainability Education program here.”
