Glossary of Environmental Education Terms.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France). Environmental Education Section.
Environmental education is a subject which attracts international attention. Because of the rapid development of environmental education, there is a lack of uniformity in the terminology used in different countries. In order for specialists speaking different languages to be able to communicate new information and concerns, there needs to be some uniformity in terminology. This glossary is directed at defining and harmonizing common terms used in environmental, educational, and training contexts, and does not duplicate the function of specialized dictionaries or glossaries. It is oriented toward interdisciplinary and international concerns, and is primarily designed for teaching and training personnel in the formal education system, particularly those in developing countries. Over 300 terms are defined. The glossary is presented in English and Russian. (CW)
