Environmental Management, Hazard Management and Education.
Lidstone, John G.
This paper investigates the links between environmental management, hazard management, and education in Australia. The purpose of the paper is to show that hazards are a major aspect of the environment of all students, hazard education is fundamental to effective hazard management in a democratic society, and hazard education should be regarded as an essential part of the environmental education of all citizens. These conclusions are reached by considering the: (1) nature of the environment; (2) nature of environmental management; (3) goals of environmental education; (4) significance of hazards in the environment; (5) potential goals of a hazardous education curriculum; and (6) directions in which the Australian Counter Disaster College should be moving in pursuing the aims of its charter in the area of hazard education and environmental education.
