Vare, Paul – Environmental Education Research, 2020
As schools seek to implement frameworks of education for sustainable development it is inevitable that they will encounter contradictions between their own aspirations and external demands. To analyse these contradictions through the lens of teachers-in-context, this research uses Cultural-historical Activity Theory that views schools as activity…

Chang, David – Environmental Education Research, 2020
Much of the current literature on environmental education links the outdoors with experiences of "wonder," which connotes a range of experiences from fascination to curiosity, excitement to delight. Most of these associations fall within a nexus of positive valences that render the discourse of wonder in glowing light. However,…

Eaton, Emily M.; Day, Nick A. – Environmental Education Research, 2020
The corporate control of energy production and the reach of fossil capital into civil and political society can be understood as a regime of obstruction that is preventing necessary action on climate change and blocking a just energy transition. In addition to overt forms of economic power and influence, hegemonic power is central to the fossil…

Stapleton, Sarah Riggs – Environmental Education Research, 2020
In this article, I advocate for critical environmental education that is responsive to power inequities and use standpoint theory to help explain why environmental education has been slow to become race-conscious/responsive. Standpoint theory provides theoretical support for the multiplicity of stories and views surrounding the environment and…

Building on a methodology of Cooperative Inquiry, the outcomes of five interconnected place-based learning projects from Australia are synthesised and elaborated in this paper.

The development, quality and impact of environmental and sustainability education (ESE) in the Caribbean have received increased attention from a growing body of education researchers over the past few decades.

Affifi, Ramsey – Environmental Education Research, 2020
In the critical tradition, environmental education discourse interrogates how knowledge constructs experience. But environmental education also emphasises perceiving, understanding and responding to "more-than-human" beings and processes. These two motivations are in tension. One problem is that the epistemological orientation driving…

Marcinkowski, Tom; Reid, Alan – Environmental Education Research, 2019
Since the early days of the field, attitude-behavior (A-B) relationships have received sustained attention in the evaluation and researching of environmental education (EE). This level of interest extends beyond the field's scope though, in part due to a certain reliance on theoretical and empirical assertions which claim that attitudes serve as a…

Sutoris, Peter – Environmental Education Research, 2019
This article argues that the mission of Environmental and Sustainability Education (ESE) is inherently political and that, by not acknowledging this, ESE interventions risk becoming part of the problem of sustainability rather than the solution. The article offers a theoretical framework for thinking about the (de)politicising effects of ESE…

This article focuses on environmental and sustainability education (ESE) in the context of the topical post-truth debate. It aims to progress theoretical research as well as empirical investigations on how ESE practices can avoid the pitfalls involved in an objectivist as well as a relativist approach to teaching and learning. After elaborating…

Krasny, Marianne E.; DuBois, Bryce – Environmental Education Research, 2019
Given the magnitude and immediacy of climate change, how should environmental education (EE) address not only reducing our climate footprint but also climate adaptation? Whereas some approaches to adaptation education are consistent with EE foundational principles, others, while crucial for individual survival, address more immediate risks in ways…

Busch, K. C.; Henderson, Joseph A.; Stevenson, Kathryn T. – Environmental Education Research, 2019
In this commentary, we reflect on the articles in this special collection from our lens as scholars who have chosen to conduct research with a focus on climate change education. We start with statements of positionality, as certainly our own experiences and philosophical stances shape our work and reflections included here. Afterwards, we present…

Gleason, Tristan – Environmental Education Research, 2019
This commentary first seeks to situate the broad themes of Bruno Latour's work by discussing how particular texts and ideas have influenced the author's thinking about science, the environment, education, and research methods that enable generative approaches towards these phenomena. Latour's work deftly crosses borders that have long siloed…
