Description

This thoughtful new book challenges our thinking about globalizing trends that are shaping international and national decisions concerning the environment and education. Jickling and his co-authors challenge world political bodies to reorient all of education towards sustainable development, and not just traditional concepts of economic development. The tension between globalization as an enriching and empowering concept-a trend that embraces pluralism and desires to improve life on Earth for all-and globalization as a homogenizing concept-a trend that will lead towards a single global market of eager consumers-runs through this book. There have been no book-length treatments of global education trends and the authors examine essential thinking about the nature and purpose of education, the evolving nature of environmental thought, and the politics of decision-making in these fields. This book will be of value to educators and practitioners in environmental education and ethics, sustainable development, natural resource management, and public and private sector professionals who wish to examine their own environmental practices and theoretical perspectives.
