Sustainable Cities, Sustainable Minds, Sustainable Schools: Pop-Up-Farm as a Connecting Device
Clarke, Paul
Improving Schools, v15 n1 p37-44 Mar 2012
This paper argues that modern education is premised upon urban industrial society, and that this has been conceived around a false notion of progress which perpetuates fracture between people and planet. If education maintains this illusion of progress whilst ignoring the reality of environmental meltdown it serves no reliable purpose in preparing, guiding and establishing the conditions for a sustainable future. Some practical examples of action are provided.
