Adult Education and the Environment
Field, John
Adults Learning, v19 n8 p8-11 Apr 2008
Due to the effects of global warming, writes Field, everyone now lives in times of plague, floods, and famine. While the UK government's track record on green issues is not all bad, still it is vulnerable to criticism. In this article, the author discusses what adult education has to offer to the environmental movement, despite existing constraints. Linking environmental and social issues, and placing the big themes within the context of everyday life, are important tasks for adult education.
