Seeing the World Anew: Educating for a Just and Sustainable Future--New Perspectives for a Catholic Curriculum
Riley, Maria; Danner-McDonald, Kerry
International Studies in Catholic Education, v5 n1 p23-35 2013
This article uses three value constructs, Catholic social thought (CST), feminist political economy (FPE) and ecological economics (Eco-Econ) to critique current mainstream economics. Insights from these values open a way to seeing and creating a just, sustainable future. Within this value framework we propose the integration of these themes in educational curricula (1) to allow both a critique of and alternatives to today's ecological, economic and care crises and (2) to provide students with the habits of lifelong study, reflection, prayer and action with others to a transformed future. To move toward seeing and living anew, we suggest that three areas be interwoven in the curriculum: CST, FPE and Eco-Econ values, service and contemplative learning, with institutional commitment in action.
