Green Inclusion: Biophilia as a Necessity
Stavrianos, Alexandros
British Journal of Special Education, v43 n4 p416-429 Dec 2016
This article argues that there is a strong link between the pedagogy for inclusion and the pedagogy of environmental education and tries to identify any benefits that could be acquired by pupils when the school system tries to use environmental educational programmes to promote inclusion. The idea of promoting a school yard into a school garden is given as an example. The article suggests that outdoor education experiences can facilitate positive development of self-esteem, peer to peer socialisation as well as teacher-student relationships and a positive attitude towards school. One might conclude that the rationale behind environmental education has much to offer to all of our pupils.
