International Case Studies in Environmental Education. Environmental Education in Action V.
Cowan, Margaret E., Ed.; Stapp, William B., Ed.
Provided in this document are case studies of representative and exemplary innovative environmental education programs from various regions of the world (North America, Latin America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia/Oceania). The case studies provide information on the environment and environmental problems and concerns of various countries, insights into that country's attitude toward the environment and education, and models of programs created for that country's situation. Many of them incorporate international cooperation or a global perspective. The opening section provides a philosophical overview of environmental education and strategies to promote environmental education internationally. Major sections which follow address multinational, national, community, and single-institution programs. Multinational programs are those which involve institutions, organizations, or governments of more than one country. National programs are single programs intended for use throughout a nation. Community programs occur in one community or localized area of a country, and focus on that community's environment. Single-institution programs are undertaken at one school, university, or museum. Case studies are also categorized in a matrix found in the introduction to the document. Programs are arranged by world region, target audience, environmental/education emphasis, and sponsor in the matrix. (JN)
