9780521112390: Environmental Education and Advocacy: Changing Perspectives of Ecology and Education

The articles in this collection examine the issues arising from the use and abuse of the term "ecology" in environmental education to encourage ecologists to become more engaged with education at all levels. Although great efforts have been made to improve understanding of the environment via programs offered by educational establishments, government agencies and others, it is sometimes perceived that environmental "education" actually entails the "advocacy" of particular values and beliefs.

Book Description:

Great efforts have been made to improve understanding of the environment via programmes offered by educational establishments, government agencies, NGOs and industry groups among others. Criticism exists that sometimes environmental 'education' is actually 'advocacy' of particular values and beliefs, and that there is no real definition of what constitutes environmental education. The editors have assembled a strong team to examine the issues arising from the use and abuse of the term 'ecology' in environmental education, in an attempt to encourage ecologists to become more engaged with education at all levels.

About the Author:

Edward Johnson is Professor of Ecology and the Director of the Kananaskis Field Stations at the University of Calgary.

Michael Mappin is the Coordinator of School and Community Programs at the Kananaskis Field Stations, University of Calgary.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Environmental education has often blurred the distinction between ecological science and environmental advocacy.

This book addresses this need by examining the changing perspectives of ecology in education and the changing perspectives of education in environmental education. Guidelines are provided for assessing the science and education perspectives within environmental education, along with suggested frameworks for development of programs and resources that integrate current science, education and action.
