9781447306467: The Challenge of Sustainability: Linking Politics, Education and Learning

The challenges we face in combating climate change and building a more sustainable world are complex and urgent. We have no option but to make things work for the better: Earth is, after all, the only home we have. Focusing on the future of humanity and of the planet itself, this timely and accessible book explores the links between politics, learning, and sustainability that must be forged in order to succeed in meeting these challenges. As the contributors show, we need to bring about a fundamental change in the way we practice politics and economics, incorporating a lifelong commitment to sustainability in all learning. With widespread implications, this book will be vital reading for academics and students across a variety of related fields, including politics, public policy, education, sustainable development, geography, media, and international relations.

About the Author:

Hugh Atkinson is a senior lecturer in politics at London South Bank University. He is the author of Local Democracy, Civic Engagement and Community: From New Labour to the Big Society. Ros Wade is professor in and director of the International Education for Sustainability Program at London South Bank University.

Review:

“We know: that global sustainability issues are biting; that radical changes are required; that this change is political yet at the same time requires a change in the way we do politics. And that the same pattern applies to education—necessary change towards sustainability can’t happen without learning, but requires a sea-change in the way we view and practice education. By bringing the case for both shifts together and explaining their relationship—as this welcome and timely book does so effectively and lucidly—the authors offer a valuable and much needed contribution towards the possibility of a better future.” (Stephen Sterling Centre for Sustainable Futures, Plymouth University, UK)

“This book deserves attention given that it covers such an important concern for future generations. Living with the capacity of this planet’s resources needs to be given a major role in social and political behaviour. This book points the way.” (Jim Chandler Sheffield Hallam University, UK)

“This timely book addresses a crucial political science issue: now that we are aware of the many global sustainability crises, how do we both create and engage a knowledgeable citizenry to democratically and collaboratively resolve both the existing threats and those surely yet to come.” (Charles Hopkins UNESCO Chair in Education for Sustainable Development, York University, Canada)
