The Education, Environment and Sustainability (EES) Faculty of Education Research Group (FRG) at Monash University is committed to advancing research-based understandings and the scholarly development of Environmental Education and Education for Sustainability.

EES researchers study sustainable human-environment, social-ecological, local-global, and culture-nature relations as they occur in:

a range of educational principles, processes, lifelong learning contexts and settings including those in formal early, primary/elementary, secondary, higher, adult and vocational education contexts;
informal everyday educational sites and scapes such as the family, neighbourhoods, workplaces, local parklands and wetlands, school and community gardens;
non-formal settings, such as local, non-government and national organizations that promote environmental, community and service sustainability.

In EES, there are largely four interrelated research strands: Ecopedagogy, Curriculum, Research/Policy, and Engagement/Impact.

EES members are leaders in the field. They have editorial responsibilities in various international journals including the highly rated Environmental Education Research. We have convened and/or advised international and world EES-related research conferences, workshops and seminar series. We work regularly with active research networks in Europe, Asia, North America, South America and Africa - see our associate members.

We also work closely with Monash Sustainability Institute (MSI). Sustainability is a priority theme for research at Monash University. The EES FRG is committed to the interdisciplinary development of research, research led education and teaching, and community engagement with purposeful impact.
