Free-Choice Learning Suited to Women's Participation Needs in Environmental Decision-Making Processes
Skanavis, Constantina; Sakellari, Maria
Environmental Education Research, v18 n1 p1-17 2012
United Nations mandates recognize the need to promote the full participation of women in environmental decision-making processes on the basis of gender equality. But, there remains a profound lack of effective women's participation in some sectors of environmental decision-making. Free-choice environmental learning offers an effective educational process for encouraging and developing such participation. This study outlines the shifts in and possibilities for women in environmental decision-making processes in and beyond Western and Northern contexts, and proposes free-choice learning as a pathway to furthering women's participation.
