Erik Assadourian, Worldwatch Institute | April 20, 2017 EarthEd: Rethinking Education on a Changing Planet

With global environmental changes locked into our future, what we teach must evolve.

  • All education will need to be environmental education, but
  • environmental education cannot focus solely on teaching everyone to live just a bit greener.
  • Instead, it will need to both teach students to be bold sustainability leaders as well as equip them with the skills necessary to survive the turbulent century ahead.

EarthEd, with contributions from 63 authors, includes chapters on

  • traditional environmental education topics, such as
    • ecoliteracy,
    • nature-based learning, and
    • systems thinking, as well as
  • expanding the conversation to new topics essential for Earth education, such as
    • character education,
    • social emotional learning,
    • the importance of play, and
    • comprehensive sex education.

Ultimately, only by boldly adapting education do we stand a chance in adapting to our rapidly changing planet.
