Paul F-Brandwein Lecture 2006: Conservation Education for the 21st Century and beyond
Roth, Charles E.
Journal of Science Education and Technology, v17 n3 p211-216 Jun 2008
This paper explores Paul Brandwein's contribution to the concept of conservation education in America. It examines the evolution of the concept to today's environmental education. It then identifies some of the weaknesses of current environmental education and presents ideas on how to move past them to a point where conservation education is integrated into every classroom discipline, which brings conservation closer to Brandwein's concept of conservation education to create a sanative environment. The paper looks at place-based learning as a step in that direction, giving several examples. It concludes with the 24 scientifically based conservation concepts compiled by the Society for Conservation Biology that can serve as curriculum for the 21st century and beyond.
