Environmental Learning

📥  New Publications

It was good to attend the launch of the new book by Mark Rickinson, Cecilia Lundholm and Nick Hopwood – and to be asked to say a few words.  What a pleasure: such an interesting book, and so beautifully written.

Environmental Learning – insights from research into the student experience brings 3 doctoral theses together and lifts the lid on ESD with perspectives from those on the receiving end.  It is written with wit and style, and has extensive and revealing student commentaries.  It deserves a very wide readership – especially by those who continue to think that ESD is mostly about what curriculum planners and teachers get to do.  No one, for example, will be able to think of "relevance" in the same way again after reading this book.

A pity about the price (Amazon will sell it to you for about £75), so get your local library to buy it so you can read it soon.
