Planning Guidelines for Environmental Education.
This pamphlet is designed to provide guidelines which will enable formal and community educational systems to make better use of the total learning environment, including natural, man-made, and human resources and to further the concept of harmony between man and the environment. The guidelines were drawn up in response to the increasing environmental deterioration and growing need for an environmentally knowledgeable public. Environmental education is viewed as one solution, a life-long process which will, through every aspect of formal and nonformal education, help each citizen develop a positive philosophy and life style toward the environment. The guide includes such topics as recommendations for implementing an environmental education curriculum, educational responsibilities of schools, colleges, vocational training institutes, and state departments of education, resource agencies, community responsibilities, and proposed educational facilities. Discussion topics, suggestions for implementation, and tables are included. (Author/TK)
