Norris, Erhabor Igbinosa
Journal of Education and Practice, v7 n8 p1-5 2016
With the ultimate aim of aiding citizens of Nigeria in becoming environmentally knowledgeable and above all skilled and dedicated citizens who are willing to work individually and collectively towards achieving or maintaining a dynamic equilibrium between quality of life and that of the environment, this raises the pertinent role of environmental education (EE) in actualizing such goal. Thus this article revealed the evolution of EE in Nigeria starting from the British colonial era; described the place of EE in the Nigeria curriculum; the infusion strategy in blending environmental education into the curriculum and the pathway in achieving the goals of EE in the country. Therefore, the researcher reiterated and reignited the focus of EE in the country among the key stakeholders in order to ensure the goals and objectives of EE are effectively achieved.
