Progress Toward a Global Perspective of Environmental Quality: Strategies to Affect Student Awareness of the Environment.
Peters, Richard O.
National and International Conferences on Environmental Education have been held over the last three years. These provide a global perspective that is translated into goals and objectives for environmental education programs in the United States. Emphasis is on the need to educate people to the fact that all mankind shares the earth and that with this realization comes responsibilities on a world-wide scale. The quality of life from a global perspective is described by the four freedoms of the environmental education movement which include participation in recreational activities, survival, self-determination as a species, and freedom from want. This global approach is being incorporated into a K-12 environmental education program through an Experimental Schools (ES) project funded by the National Institute of Education. Background information is given on the development and progress of this program, along with a statement of program goals. (MA)
