Stein, Sharon – Australian Journal of Environmental Education, 2019
In this article, I offer a decolonial critique of the ethical and ecological limits of mainstream sustainability efforts in higher education. In doing so, I identify colonialism as the primary cause of climate change, and the primary condition of possibility for modern higher education. I further suggest that the abiding failure to address the…

Boxley, Simon – Australian Journal of Environmental Education, 2019
If the dawn of the Anthropocene heralds the collapse of the natural and social sciences into a single geostory, then why not also a radical synthesis of the anthropocentrism of Marxist theorising with the biocentrism of Deep Ecology? This article proposes just such a unifcation for theorising education. First, those on the educational left who…

Thornton, Simone; Graham, Mary; Burgh, Gilbert – Australian Journal of Environmental Education, 2019
We argue that to face climate change, all education, from kindergarten to tertiary, needs to be underpinned by environmental education. Moreover, as a site of "reframing," education when coupled with philosophy is a possible site of infuencing "societal reframing" in order to re-examine our relations to nature or our natural…
