Abstract In order to minimize the life threatening ecological impacts of human actions there is an urgent need for education to prioritize personal and societal transformation as one of its central purposes. The broad fundamental and systemic changes required are not well understood, nor is there substantial research identifying how secondary schools and teachers can implement new responsive pedagogical frameworks at a grass roots level. This paper presents an emerging research agenda looking at how design-led and whole systems thinking approaches to learning, applied within a holistic ecocentric learning paradigm, can be used to promote transformative learning towards active global citizenship and global sustainability within an Australian independent school context.
