Social, Cultural, and Ecological Justice in the Age the Anthropocene: A New Zealand Early Childhood Care and Education Perspective
Ritchie, Jenny
Journal of Pedagogy, v6 n2 p41-56 Dec 2015
Educators have an ethical responsibility to uphold the wellbeing of the children, families and communities that they serve. This commitment becomes even more pressing as we move into the era of the Anthropocene, where human induced climate changes are disrupting the planet's systems, threatening the survival of not only humans, but of eco-systems and the earth's biodiversity. This paper draws upon examples from Aotearoa (New Zealand) to demonstrate ways in which a critical pedagogy of place informed by local traditional knowledges can inform early childhood education whilst also enhancing dispositions of empathy towards self and others, including more-than-human others.
