Abstract: Education for Sustainable Development has increasingly taken on importance around the world over the past decade. As such, the Earthducation project is examining intersections between education and sustainability in climate hotspots on all the continents, with three field expeditions completed to date. While in the field, the team is documenting local culture, environmental issues, and educational practices, and collecting video narratives from a diverse spectrum of people discussing individual and regional beliefs about the role of and intersections between education and sustainability. These data are being shared online while the team is in the field. In addition, the general public has been contributing their own perspectives on these issues via self-posted videos within an online EnviroNetwork. The video narratives gathered to date illustrate both how education can influence sustainability in different regions of the world, and the complexities that geographical location and culture bring to this topic.
