Corman, Lauren – Canadian Journal of Environmental Education, 2011
Freire's influential text, "Pedagogy of the Oppressed," relies on both anthropocentric and speciesist arguments to articulate a pedagogy for human liberation. While Freire's anthropocentric understandings of "nature" have been more thoroughly critiqued, less attention has been given to his construction of nonhuman animals, in particular. I argue…

Castellano, Maria; Quirino de Luca, Andrea; Sorrentino, Marcos – Canadian Journal of Environmental Education, 2011
This article addresses the interface between environmental and humane education, as a theoretical and practical emerging field in Brazil.

We then describe an…

Scott, Charles – Canadian Journal of Environmental Education, 2010
Martin Buber's philosophy of dialogue offers an epistemic and ontological orientation upon which an ecological identity can be established as part of an integrated, environmental education. I consider here the significance of a relational self in establishing this ecological identity, as well as the benefits from doing so. This relational,…

The task was structured to stimulate thought…

Piersol, Laura – Canadian Journal of Environmental Education, 2010
In an effort to figure out what it means to educate "ecologically," I decided to track down some of the stories that I was living, telling and making as an educator. I ended up lost in the house of environmental education, stuck within the rooms of ecological science and political advocacy. Outside on the lawn sat the story of place…

This article explores the intersection of art education and place-based education as a means of developing ecological literacy.

Kentish, Barry; Robottom, Ian – Canadian Journal of Environmental Education, 2008
In Australia there has been a rapid move to an acceptance of education for sustainability as mainstream environmental education.
