Canada considers environmental education in all areas of education and education levels, be it in primary, secondary, high school, adult education, vocational education – and in formal and non-formal learning settings. However the nation recognizes that the existing challenges and issues require more innovation and greater focus on the implementation of educative measures and efficient daily actions to promote sustainable development. Therefore, this article focuses on using inquiry-based teaching practices for environmental sustainable education in pre-service teachers.
