Earth-Heart Astronomy: Astronomy-Related Activities to Enhance Education for Sustainable Development
Townsend, Christopher
School Science Review, v92 n338 p97-102 Sep 2010
This article outlines a range of engaging outdoor daytime activities to enhance astronomical understanding and our place in the universe. They are practical activities with "soul" which engender environmental and social responsibility on a local (yet planetary) scale. They link astronomical and global considerations with a notion of responsibility, respect, care and love to help nurture a fuller appreciation of the challenges of sustainable development and a sense of purpose in facing them. (Contains 7 figures.)
