This document consists of the eight issues of the UNESCO-UNEP Environmental Education Newsletter published in 1991 and 1992. The lead article in the March 1991 issue, "From Awareness to Action via Nonformal Environmental Education," discusses the different methods to translate and transmit environmental education concepts to citizens in simple and understandable terms. Particularly targeted by this effort are women of the developing world. Methods cited include use of television and radio, popular theater, group discussions, and nature museums. The lead article in the June 1991 issue, "A Universal Environmental Ethic: The Ultimate Goal of Environmental Education," proposes that the development of an environmental ethic that asks individuals to think globally and act locally should draw from environmental cultures. The article discusses the development of environmental ethics in several religious cultures. The lead article in the September 1991 issue, "Environmental Education for University Students," discusses the development of courses that provide intensive environmental education and training for students in two special groups: (1) student scientists, technologists and other future experts dealing directly with environmental concerns; and (2) students of professions whose future work will have an influence and impact on environmental management. The lead article in the December 1991 issue, "Incorporating Environmental Education into Industrial Education," discusses an environmental education curriculum for Industrial Schools. The lead article in the September 1992 issue, "Environment or Development--A False Alternative?", discusses recent advocacy of sustainable development. Topics discussed include: (1) Models to illustrate that sustainable development is the intersection of social, economic and environmental goals; (2) principles for sustainable development supported by the International Chamber of Commerce; (3) sustainable development in the humid tropics; and (4) environmental education for women. The lead article in the December 1992 issue discusses Biodiversity, the necessity to protect endangered plant and animal species, and how to infuse biodiversity in the curriculum through environmental education.
