Weldemariam, Kassahun – Environmental Education Research, 2020
Early Childhood Education in general, and Early Childhood Education for Sustainability in particular, have dominantly relied on an ontological framework that privileges children's agency.

Saari, Antti; Mullen, John – Environmental Education Research, 2020
Escalating ecological events like global warming haunt our lived experience of place and demand thinking the concept anew in environmental education research. Using Timothy Morton's notions of hyperobjects and dark ecology as a springboard, we articulate the uncanny--the withdrawn, unknowable, excessive and anxiety-provoking--aspects of place that…

Lindgren, Nicklas; Öhman, Johan – Environmental Education Research, 2019
This paper contributes to the debate about the absence of nonhuman animals (The term 'nonhuman animal' is used to emphasise the interconnection with the human being, viewed as a human animal. Using this terminology does not avoid a homogenising, stereotyping and simplifying of a multiplicity of animal (and human) beings. Nonetheless, we think that…

Brymer, Eric; Davids, Keith – Environmental Education Research, 2013
This paper proposes how the theoretical framework of ecological dynamics can provide an influential model of the learner and the learning process to pre-empt effective behaviour changes. Here we argue that ecological dynamics supports a well-established model of the learner ideally suited to the environmental education context because of its…

Rautio, Pauliina – Environmental Education Research, 2013
Rather than categorically teaching us ways to be less anthropocentric, environmental education could be about educating us of the ways in which we already are nature as human animals. In this paper, one species-specific practice of human relating to environment--interspecies articulation--is argued as one way of being nature. Interspecies…

Duhn, Iris – Environmental Education Research, 2012
Culturally, childhood is often understood as a time of innocence which can mean that issues such as ecological sustainability are considered too problematic for early childhood practice.

Watson, Gavan Peter Longley – Environmental Education Research, 2011
This paper focuses on the implications of two emerging digital technologies on the act of field birding, and the implications of these objects for thinking about wild birds. While the adoption of new immaterial technologies promises to improve the ease with which birding is practiced, their use leads to new ethical considerations. Using the…

Dobrin, Sidney I. – Environmental Education Research, 2010
By way of reclamation of the metaphor "green," this paper contends that research regarding the relationships between children's literatures and cultures and environmental experience requires a reinvigorated consideration of the role of the visual. The heightened importance of visual texts is made evident via three primary, contemporary conditions…

Rathzel, Nora; Uzzell, David – Environmental Education Research, 2009
This paper puts forward an alternative view on sustainable development, arguing that the separation between the economy, the environment and the social in the Brundtland model obscures the societal character of the economy, the economic bases of the social, and the fact that the environment is a societal product. We differentiate between strong…

In this paper, the authors give an account of the origins and development of a…
