Sustainability is comprised of three pillars; society, environment and economics. Australia’s national Office of Learning and Teaching Education for Sustainability defines Sustainability as “making decisions that do not have negative consequences for either current or future generations. It implies both the preservation of natural resources and a commitment to human and societal well being”.

Learning and Teaching for Sustainability (LTfS) is an ongoing RMIT initiative led by the Office of Dean Learning and Teaching to create new curriculum resources, professional development and experiential learning activities. The initiative aligns with RMIT's sustainability policy and sustainability action plan [PDF, 845 KB, 31 pages], which aim to enhance RMIT’s student sustainability literacy, in turn enhancing the student learning experience in relation to contemporary and future professional and global imperatives and enhancing their graduate employment outcomes.
