Environmental Education for Sustainable Development in Russia
Kasimov, N. S.; Malkhazova, S. M.; Romanova, E. P.
Journal of Geography in Higher Education, v29 n1 p49-59 Mar 2005
The conceptual underpinning and the organizational structure of the existing system of higher environmental education in Russia are analysed. The system, embracing 129 universities, has been created in the last 10 years. At present there is a shift from general environmental education to education for sustainable development. The new system is based on the incorporation of natural, economic and social components into the curriculum. The paper also discusses the contribution of Russian scientists to the sustainable development concept (D.L. Armand's works of the 1960s) and Russia's participation in the development of the European Strategy for Education for Sustainable Development (ESD).
