Sustainability gained a new vision and pioneered new curricular application patterns after implementation of the 2009 New Senior Secondary Liberal Studies in Hong Kong. For the first time, sustainability entered into formal schooling on a compulsory bases as part of a liberal studies subject. Yet, to what degree the curriculum has affected sustainability consciences of Hong Kong students? The interviews of ~30 teacher-participants of a two-year RGC study tell a story of the success and challenges and provide a collective teachers’ narrative. The presentation will connect this to Bateson's transformative learning model and discuss emerging grassroots patterns of fostering sustainability consciousness in Hong Kong students.
