Piersol, Laura; Russell, Linda; Groves, Jenny – Australian Journal of Environmental Education, 2018
Within the North American public education system, institutionalised structures of schooling often prevent teachers from aligning their values with their practice when it comes to environmental education (Bowers, 1997; Weston, 2004). In response to this, this article will outline our lived experiences, as teachers and researcher, in disrupting the…

Davila, Federico; Dyball, Robert – Australian Journal of Environmental Education, 2015
This article draws on La Via Campesina's definition of food sovereignty and its potential for reconceptualising food as a basic human right within the dominant Australian food discourse.

Jickling, Bob – Australian Journal of Environmental Education, 2014
When considering a topic as broad as research in environmental education it seems worthwhile, at the onset, to make some basic distinctions: (1) establishing research priorities is not simply an empirical question; and (2) a much more challenging task is to more clearly understand the nature of the questions to which we seek answers. How do we go…
