BIG IDEA : Promoting Systems Thinking (ST): Education for Sustainability (EfS) in the Philippines 
Challenges: Mental models of apathy, low level of awareness, non accountability, etc.
The Earth does not belong to man; man belongs to the Earth. This we know. All things are connected like the blood which unites one family. Whatever befalls the Earth befalls the sons of the Earth. Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself. - Chief Seattle, Duwamish Tribe 
Education for Sustainability
Process: Prototype ST Modules on EfS for USJ-R High School faculty 
Support of stakeholders crucial; network with other like minded institutions/individuals
