The authors discuss how the current ecological imbalance became a widespread concern, referring to the non-compliance with international and national conventions that induced the understanding of a global co-responsibility in finding a planetary solution. It is also analyzed how environmental ethics came to enshrine non-human rights, while transmuting the demand of human solidarity to the various inhabitants from the multiple ecosystems, thus stressing the importance of a collective incumbency towards Nature. As authors try to show, it is, therefore, wise to strive for developing an ingrained concern regarding environmental issues, namely, sustainability, relying on education to promote a teleological sense.
EcoJustice Education offers a powerful model for cultural ecological analysis and a pedagogy of responsibility, providing teachers and teacher educators with the information and classroom practices they need to help develop citizens who are prepared to support and achieve diverse, democratic, and sustainable societies in an increasingly globalized world. Readers are asked to consider curricular strategies to bring these issues to life in their own classrooms across disciplines. Designed for introductory educational foundations and multicultural education courses, the text is written in a narrative, conversational style grounded in place and experience, but also pushes students to examine the larger ideological, social, historical, and political contexts of the crises humans and the planet we inhabit are facing. Pedagogical features in each chapter include a Conceptual Toolbox, activities accompanying the theoretical content, examples of lessons and teacher reflections, and suggested readings, films, and links. The Second Edition features a new chapter on Anthropocentrism; new material on Heterosexism; updated statistics and examples throughout; new and updated Companion Website content.
