About this book

Our Common Illiteracy takes seriously the international consensus that Education for Sustainability (EfS) is crucial to the survival of humankind. It establishes the principles of a sustainable society and performs a rigorous assessment of the reasons for our unsustainable present.

Only on that foundation, it is argued, can the role of education in the transition to a sustainable society be meaningfully assessed. Such an approach is by necessity complex, transdisciplinary and broad. It has to acknowledge the limited significance of education within contemporary society, along with other 'educators' such as the media, the economy and the shadow curriculum of institutional practice. The book ends with 28 practical strategies to foster Education for Sustainability.
