Khan, Shirley Ali; Parkin, Christopher
FE Matters, v1 n1 1995
In 1992 the Further Education Unit (FEU) published a guide to environmental action in Further Education colleges, "Colleges Going Green," that drew attention to the moral principle of sustainability that includes a duty of care for other people and forms of life and acknowledges the need to limit and to share the use of the earth's resources. This document is the first of two reports to update "Colleges Going Green." This report is aimed at all participants in further education curriculum development, including college management groups, course leaders, and teachers. It reports relevant national policy developments and initiatives and identifies approaches to developing the environmental dimension to the curriculum corresponding to the different levels of commitment to environmental responsibility. It also illustrates methods of delivering environmental education from examples sent by colleges in response to a circular letter from FEU and gives indicators for evaluating institutional and curriculum practice. Contains 21 references. (JRH)
