What Kind of Environment Will Our Children Have?
Sutman, Francis X., Ed.
This collection of speeches is divided into five parts. In Part I, Paul Brandewein outlines 13 basic propositions on the environment and how man has violated them, and then suggests a strategy for change. In Part II, Herminio Lugo Lugo discusses the education campaign which Puerto Rico has mounted to confront pollution; E. Wesley Menzel outlines three broad areas for consideration in designing new environmental education programs; and Fabio Heredia-Cana discusses man's lack of respect for his environment. In Part II, two critical topics receive scrutiny: urbanization, in a speech by Paul Peachey, and population education, in a paper by Stephen Viederman. A third paper, by Maria T. Cano offers ideas on materials for population education in the schools. Part IV presents two views on environmental education. George E. Lowe emphasizes the need for a nationwide program, while Edward H. Seymour notes the responsibility of each individual for envrionmental balance and discusses industry's role. Part V contains four brief descriptions of current programs and research in environmental education, with speeches by Richard Miller, J. Leonard Johnson, Alan M. Voelker, and Richard M. Bingman. Conference recommendations for preservice general and professional education of teachers and for graduate and inservice teacher education emphasize the multidimensionality of environmental studies and the need for an interdisciplinary approach. (A list of conference delegates and participants is included.) (RT)
