An Integrated Approach to Environmental Education: A Case Study
du Preez, Nicolaas P.; Mohr-Swart, Maryna
International Journal of Sustainability in Higher Education, v5 n1 p11-20 2004
In 1994, the Executive Management Committee (EMC) of Technikon Pretoria took a strategic decision to develop educational programmes in environmental management and sustainable development. The EMC also decided to integrate these programmes with the development and implementation of an environmental management policy for Technikon Pretoria. This paper describes, in the form of a case study, the project embarked upon, which brings together the development and implementation of the curriculum, research and development, management processes for sustainability, community service and national and international cooperation. The paper discusses successes and failures, and the significant lessons that could be learnt from the experience.
