While governments and NGOs have stated repeatedly that education is crucial if we are to make the transition to sustainable modes of living, there has been little discussion of the radical challenge that this poses for education itself. This is the first book published in the UK to provide an overview of the theory and practice of education for sustainability, making a case for a critical and purposive approach to education which is appropriate to the challenges of our times. It brings together contributions from environmental educators working in the formal and informal sectors and in continuing education, and provides perspectives on relevant philosophy, politics and pedagogy of education for sustainability, as well as case studies and pointers towards good practice. Education for Sustainability aims to place sustainability at the centre of the education debate, and education within the sustainability debate.
