Acknowledging the dual notions of danger and opportunity that present themselves in contemporary social and ecological crises, this book explores how both peace and environmental education can transform the way we think and what we value. The book outlines the link between social violence and ecological degradation and the need to educate for the purpose of achieving social and ecological peace. Specialists in peace and environmental education offer a holistic and integrated approach on educating about these problems and challenges. They also provide educational strategies, such as curricular frameworks and pedagogical innovations appropriate for both formal and informal settings, and case studies and examples that illustrate their application.
âAt once compact and daring, this remarkable book examines a wide variety of texts that deal with issues of the Earthâs rapidly dwindling natural resources.â â CHOICE
"This book offers the most comprehensive and cogently argued case for conjoining environmental, social justice, and peace education that I have encountered. The authors present a multifaceted vision of why such education is needed and what it might look like. I finished each chapter with a sense of intellectual excitement and gratitude. I look forward to using the book in my classes." Â Gregory A. Smith, coeditor of Ecological Education in Action: On Weaving Education, Culture, and the Environment
