Goldin, Jaqui; Mokomela, Resego; Kanyerere, Thokozani; Villholth, Karen G. – Journal of Education for Sustainable Development, 2021
With the impulse to control and order the disorderly, the threads or tributaries of affect and emotion, which mimic the meanderings of the aquifer itself, are often oversimplified or ignored.

Anthropogenic activities cause environmental degradation-related problems.

Beer, David Löw; Holz, Verena – Journal of Education for Sustainable Development, 2021
Within socio-economic transformation processes, the task of education is often reduced to short-term economic factors, that is, a suitable qualification profile of the local population.
