When the document debuted in 2000 as the global "framework to guide the transition to a sustainable future" (Earth Charter Initiative, n.d.-a, para. 2), the writers promoted it as a solution to environmental problems that incorporated voices…

Witteman, Cassandra – Canadian Journal of Environmental Education, 2020
The body is the precondition of any meaning-laden space of learning. As we are located in environments frothing with life, we engage in meaning making through and with the senses of the body, engaging in the creation of scaffoldings of symbolic, rhizomatic understandings by which we navigate our worlds. Thus, I argue that our embodied subjective…

Ho, Yi Chien Jade – Canadian Journal of Environmental Education, 2020
Place is often seen as a location of meaning. But whose meaning fills the location? Who defines meaning? What kind of meaning do we seek? These questions inadvertently call on place-based education to reflect on the often-unexamined meaning of place prevailing in the field. This paper draws substantially on the work of critical feminist…

Jardine, David – Canadian Journal of Environmental Education, 2020
David Jardine shares his reflections on pedagogy, conspiracy and bird watching. To him the purpose of bird watching is not about getting a longer and longer list of things that he can now ignore.

Jickling, Bob; Blenkinsop, Sean – Canadian Journal of Environmental Education, 2020
The first climate change conference was held in 1979 in Geneva and sponsored by the World Meteorological Organization. Since then there have been many other initiatives and accords along the way. Each report appears to present an evermore grim picture than the previous one. Cumulatively, we have had more than enough science to know what to do, and…

Elliott, Paul; Duerk, Cathy; Rodenburg, Jacob – Canadian Journal of Environmental Education, 2020
To create a truly regenerative future, simply reforming teacher education to prioritize Environmental and Sustainability Education (ESE) will not create the wide-ranging changes in the education system needed to meet the environmental challenges facing humanity.
