Caplow, Susan – Environmental Education Research, 2019
Environmental educators using animal companions can compel individuals to engage in pro-environmental behaviour by promoting environmental values, beliefs, and behavioural norms. This study examines how institutional context and mission influence the framing of these types of messages in live animal interpretive experiences. I compare three…

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…

Affifi, Ramsey; Christie, Beth – Environmental Education Research, 2019
Loss, impermanence, and death are facts of life difficult to face squarely. Our own mortality and that of loved ones feels painful and threatening, the mortality of the biosphere unthinkable. Consequently, we do our best to dodge these thoughts, and the current globalizing culture supports and colludes in our evasiveness. Even environmental…

Code, Jonathan M. – Environmental Education Research, 2019
This article has its roots in both literacy studies and environmental education. Beginning with a critical consideration of what it might mean to be 'literate' I argue that a re-evaluation of what it means to be "ecoliterate" is in order. I challenge current articulations of ecoliteracy, both in their relation to foundational literacy…

Zoo educators are important communicators of the targets in education for sustainable development and therefore carry great responsibility for global environmental change. However, German zoo educators form a heterogeneous group, many of them working in non-permanent job positions and facing multiple challenges at work. Applying the job…

Aarnio-Linnanvuori, Essi – Environmental Education Research, 2019
Environmental responsibility can be collective or individual. In environmental education, private-sphere responsibility is often promoted. However, emphasising individual pro-environmental behaviour may cause problems, such as feelings of guilt and powerlessness, a focus on ineffective activities, and gendered responsibility. In this article, I…

The environmental education (EE) field has encountered persistent challenges in fostering the integration of EE practices in public schools, a challenge that may be addressed through integration of EE with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) in the United States. In addition to the potential for fostering EE, the integration of EE and…

Aedo, María Paz; Peredo, Santiago; Schaeffer, Colombina – Environmental Education Research, 2019
Adult education in political ecology entails critically and constructively observing the interactions among the actors involved in socioecological conflicts at global and local scales. This definition invites transcending environmental education and education for sustainability's frontiers, examining the ontology, or the 'place', from where actors…

Lowan-Trudeau, Gregory – Environmental Education Research, 2019
Educators who introduce critical socio-ecological issues into learning contexts often experience formidable internal and external challenges. This is especially true when intersecting Indigenous and environmental issues are involved. Compounding such difficulties in Canada is an inadequate level of pre-service, curricular, resource, and research…

Mickelsson, Martin; Kronlid, David O.; Lotz-Sisitka, Heila – Environmental Education Research, 2019
This article aims to introduce a view of scaling as a learning process. In the article we discuss the concept of 'scaling up' or 'scaling' of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) activities on the basis of how 'scaling up' ESD is highlighted in the UNESCO Global Action Programme (GAP) on ESD. Drawing on a Deweyan theory of learning as…

In addition to demographic data,…

Stapleton, Sarah Riggs – Environmental Education Research, 2019
In this paper, I present evidence for framing climate change education around social justice. More specifically, I provide empirical support for framing climate change education around intragenerational climate justice, and argue that this frame can influence youth in industrialized, wealthy nations to become mobilized, climate-engaged…
