This is a report on the Intergovernmental Conference on Environmental Education held from October 14-26 in the USSR. The conference intended to create the necessary framework for broad programs of international cooperation, to reach agreement on goals, objectives, and guiding principles for environmental education, and to devise practical recommendations for action in environmental education. The conference adopted a 60-page final report that contained 41 recommendations. Among them was an international framework for environmental education consisting of a goal statement, objectives, and guiding principles. These goals, objectives, and principles are presented in this report along with some suggestions for implementation in the United States. (BB)
