I just read your question/ideas and very much agree with you about the practical education.
When I read that, I thought immediately of an organisation at the University Twente in the Netherlands: The Working group on Development Techniques (WOT). I think they might be interested in your ideas and perhaps can help you. I don't know if they are a member of this website. Their website is: http://www.wot.utwente.nl/index.html
Wish you luck,
Yes, I am supervising one biogas project in Busunu, in Northern Ghana, where we are incorporating Jathropha cake into human and animal wastes. At Busunu, we have also Biofuels and solar energy which we are trying to integrate for power supply to the village community.

I am honestly suggesting that we need to teach children as early as 6yrs on how to leave sustainably. For instance, if we tell them the need to switch off their toys in order to preserve the battery, we teaching them to conserve energy for future use. Again, we need to tell them why we have to water the gardens and flowers.
I will suggest that, sustainability be embedded in the curricula of learners from primary to the secondary, all through to the university.
It should start with nature studies, then geography and integrated science at the secondary school and at the tertiary level, it can stand alone as sustainbility studies or sustainable development. It could still be built-in science, engineering and technological related disciplines.
