Youth and Environmental Education.
Connect, v9 n4 Dec 1984
The United Nations General Assembly decided in 1979 to make 1985 International Youth Year (IYY). Several of the central themes of this year (participation, development, and peace) are directly concerned with education and action relative to an improved, sustainable environment, both natural and built. This issue of the Unesco-UNEP (United Nations Environment Programme) environmental newsletter Connect focuses on environmental education (EE) and youth. It contains: (1) an overall report on youth and EE globally, which is based on a chapter of a sourcebook in nonformal EE to be published by the Unesco-UNEP International EE Programme; (2) a summary of Unesco activities related to youth; (3) UNEP actions for IYY; (4) highlights of a World Assembly of Youth workshop on population, environment, and development; (5) goals of and activities at the Spanish Center for Environmental Education "Los Molinos" (CEMA-Centro Educativo del Medio Ambiente); (6) a discussion of EE activities in Hong Kong; (7) a description of university-level EE activities in Australia; (8) highlights of a seminar on nonformal scientific EE; and (9) short descriptions of recent EE publications, organizational activities, and other types of EE news.
