The conference reported on in these proceedings was held in June, 1974. The nine emerging issues in environmental education identified prior to the conference are: (1) skill training in environmental education; (2) environmental-social justice issue relationships; (3) the constituency of environmentalism; (4) the support system for environmental education; (5) the relationship between environmental education in schools and the structure and process of formal education; (6) environmental education and the concept of values; (7) local versus global perspectives; (8) autonomy and integrity of the learner; and (9) the relationship of environmental issues and economics. An essay and the edited texts of small-group discussions on each issue are given. Also included are the results of a survey on the views of environmental educators concerning emerging issues in environmental education and a checklist of criteria for planning and evaluating education programs which was developed based on the conference transcripts.
