A National Review of Environmental Education and its Contribution to Sustainability - ARIES (2005)
This review assesses current environmental education practice in Australia and identifies the needs across the various sectors: school, community, business and industry and further and higher education. Based on research undertaken by ARIES, the Australian Research Institute in Education for Sustainability, this review is relevant to all those involved in the design and delivery of environmental education.
The five volumes, which make up the review, highlight opportunities to improve policy, practice and research. Volume one, in particular, will be useful for botanic garden educators as it provides the conceptual basis for understanding environmental education’s contribution to sustainability and identifies the various approaches to learning for sustainability.
