The purpose of this research was to elucidate the relevance of the area of home economics in practical arts (technology & home economics) curriculum to green growth education, finding applicable cases of green growth education content in the field of home economics education. Given this base, we performed a survey with people who majored in home economics education and elementary school teachers on how green growth education related to their education. We studied applied cases and performed a survey by open-ended questions that extracts the green growth education content. In synthesizing the results of these studies so far, we have concluded that home economics education is much related to green growth education, and that with a change of people's conceptions when relating school life to household life, home economics can be a very useful subject that can lead to the practice of the green growth education.
