Book Description:
Geography, environment, sustainability, culture and education standing alone or in any combination, provide the ingredients for a variety of stews. They are all difficult to define and they generate endless debates for theoreticians and practitioners about their meaning and significance. The editors have divided the chapters that follow into two parts in an effort to unit these diverse disciplines. Part 1 is concerned with cultural foundations and curriculum issues related to geographical and environmental education for sustainability. The second Part comprises a series of chapters presenting education for sustainability in the contexts of national cultures.
