Postila, Teresa Elkin – Australian Journal of Environmental Education, 2019
The aim of this article is to show how water emerged as a research method nearby and within a small stream during a 9-month fieldwork carried out with preschool children. The feldwork was informed and shaped by the preschool children's and researcher's situated knowledges and their questions about environmental issues concerning water, absence of…

Bazzul, Jesse – Australian Journal of Environmental Education, 2019
This article emphasises the importance of creative thought for environmental education through a discussion of the ontologically rich work of Anna Tsing, Timothy Morton and John Peters. The recent turn toward ontology in the humanities and social sciences has consequently led to diverse theories about 'how things are', and some of these concepts…

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…

Cole, David R. – Australian Journal of Environmental Education, 2019
The philosophy of Gilles Deleuze has become popular in recent moves to embed approaches such as the new materialist and the posthuman in environmental education. Certainly, a newfound respect for the material universe, including the comprehension of the human place in it, and the tendency to a posthuman theoretical position, are both important…

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…

Smith, Caroline; Watson, Jane – Australian Journal of Environmental Education, 2019
In this article, we outline the key principles of education for sustainability (EfS) that enable us to question the enthusiastic and uncritical promotion of STEM (science, mathematics, engineering and technology) and its offshoot, STEM education, as key contributors to an environmentally sustainable future. We examine the framing of STEM and STEM…

Ram, Rajesh – Australian Journal of Environmental Education, 2019
The Australian brushtail possum ("Trichosurus vulpecula") is one of many animal species classifed as alien under the biosecurity system in New Zealand. However, it is against the possums that a relentless campaign is perpetrated. This article attempts to explain some of the many reasons behind such intense negativity, and in doing so,…

Rose, Nicholas; Lourival, Izo – Australian Journal of Environmental Education, 2019
National and global food systems are beset by intersecting and mutually reinforcing crises of public and ecological health. The locus of these crises resides primarily in the excessive concentration of corporate power and control. Deploying a Gramscian theory of politics as a contribution to the ongoing development of a critical food-based…

This article presents an analysis of three uniquely situated garden-based research studies. As colleagues intrigued by the rich, intricate, learning dynamics playing out within the garden spaces, our collaboration explored the broader meaning and potential for garden-based programming. As we discussed the three garden studies, two themes emerged…

Casinader, Niranjan; Kidman, Gillian – Australian Journal of Environmental Education, 2018
Common notions around the concept of sustainability tend to be framed within the values and principles that the world's natural environments need to be used and managed in such a way as to make them available for future generations. Consequently, pedagogical approaches in environmental education that follow this intellectual thread tend to adopt a…

Siegel, Lisa; Cutter-Mackenzie-Knowles, Amy; Bellert, Anne – Australian Journal of Environmental Education, 2018
In their seminal 2002 paper, Kollmuss and Agyeman asked the important question 'Why do people act environmentally and what are the barriers to pro-environmental behaviour?' The article has had a remarkably high rate of readership, with 64,900 electronic views to date, and 16 years later, this question remains significant. But are environmental…

Gerofsky, Susan; Ostertag, Julia – Australian Journal of Environmental Education, 2018
The co-authors, collaborators in garden-based teacher education, question the hegemony of grids in Western time, space and relationship structures in education, while also delving into our own complicity and entanglement with these grids. We ask: (1) Can we reject the grid in environmental education and in garden-based learning when it is an…
