Rethinking School Lunch: Education for Sustainability in Practice
Stone, Michael K.
Canadian Journal of Environmental Education, v12 n1 p19-32 2007
This paper complements Fritjof Capra's paper in this issue, "Sustainable Living, Ecological Literacy, and the Breath of Life." It explores how concepts essential to ecological literacy can also guide strategies for overcoming barriers to introducing integrated, multidisciplinary pedagogy into school curricula. It examines how the crisis of childhood obesity and nutrition-related illness constitutes a point of systemic instability that creates an opportunity to integrate experiential learning and academics, and to promote ecological thinking while addressing mandated standards. It illustrates the contributions to environmental education that a small third-party organization with a clear conceptual framework can make. (Contains 1 note.)
