Environmental Education in Action - III: Case Studies of Public Involvement in Environmental Policy.
Schoenfeld, Clay, Comp.; Desinger, John F., Comp.
Presented here are 27 case studies of public involvement in environmental policy. These are examples of environmental education or communications programs developed by local, state, regional or national environmental action groups. The reports tell how the groups have successfully, or unsuccessfully, mobilized public opinion in favor of beneficent land use of recycling of wastes, or against a potential plant site in favor of pollution control legislation, or towards incorporating environmental studies more effectively in school curricula.
