This document provides information on the origins, activities, philosophical underpinnings, and initial progress of the Education for Sustainability in Galapagos Program (ESG). The ESG Program has evolved over time, with important input from the local educational community in Galapagos, specialists in Ecuador’s Ministry of Education, and experienced educators from the United States, Ecuador, and other Latin American countries.

While some aspects of their approach may be specific to the needs and realities of Galapagos, it is their hope that different facets of the model and activities described in the document will be helpful to others pursuing deep educational change.
