About this book

A growing body of research has given critical attention to diverse theories and practices of environmental education, and its potential contribution to addressing pressing global issues such as sustainable development and climate change.

While much of this work has focused on perspectives and practices in Europe and North America, Education, Community Engagement and Sustainable Development explores environmental learning within formal education, in programmes by non-governmental organisations, and in public education spaces in Monteverde, Costa Rica.

The discussion in Education, Community Engagement and Sustainable Development also highlights the need for more research to understand the broader social and economic interactions between such efforts and the communities in which they are located.

Contents

1 Introduction
2 Education, Environment, Development and the Costa Rican State
3 Environmental Education In Schools
4 Environmental Education And Conservation Organisations
5 Environmental Knowledge In Public Spaces
