Policy Development, Theory and Practice in Environmental Adult Education: Reflections on the Learning for Environmental Action Programme from 1995 to the Present
Clover, Darlene E.
Convergence, v39 n4 p51-54 2006
Contemporary neo-conservative and globalisation practices and policies have a powerful impact on every aspect of human life. Policies enacted by the governments to accumulate wealth have destroyed natural environments like nothing before. As the negative impact of neo-conservatism and globalisation grew on people's lives and environment, the International Council for Adult Education (ICAE) rose to the challenge. From 1995 to 2000, the Learning for Environmental Action Programme (LEAP) was one of the major programme areas of the ICAE until funding and other practical and policy changes re-shaped ICAE's trajectory. LEAP members from Philippines, Canada, Mexico, Sudan, South Pacific and Jamaica, in collaboration with countless others in their regions, worked in three main development areas. This article describes these three main areas: (1) Policy and partnership development; (2) Theory and practice; and (3) Ideas for ways forward.
