Environmental Education and Politics: Snakes and Ladders Revisited
Chapman, David
Australian Journal of Environmental Education, v20 n2 p23-30 2004
This paper revisits the history of environmental education in Australia in the 1970s and 1980s and draws parallels between these and current events in four countries, including Australia. It is argued that little has changed and that few environmental educators confront the inherently political nature of their work. It is concluded that environmental education activity must adopt a wider scope that includes political activity if progress is to be made.
