ELP 519 Sustainability Education

Foregrounding urgency of climate change, this course explores theories and innovative practices of sustainability education in formal and informal settings. Participants critically assess earlier traditions such as nature education, environmental education, and outdoor education, as well as explore the intersections of indigenous, ecofeminist, and ecojustice perspectives on sustainability. Drawing upon global examples, the course promotes development of practitioners and scholars with proficiency, solutions-based knowledge, and tools to advance sustainability education in their own life/professional contexts.
