United Nations Environment Programme, Nairobi (Kenya).; United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
This document is the result of discussion, additions, amendments, and approval of a working document submitted for this purpose to the Unesco-UNEP (United Nations Environment Programme) International Congress on Environmental Education and Training (Moscow, USSR, August 1987). Part 1 seeks to highlight certain needs and priorities in respect to the development of environmental education and training as they emerge from the action taken in this field since the Intergovernmental Conference on Environmental Education (Tbilisi, USSR, 1977). Part 2 outlines an international strategy for action in the field of environmental education and training for the 1990s. The third chapter, which is the main part of the document, indicates specific international action in this field. The last chapter is structured around nine sections, each corresponding to an important aspect of environmental education and training or to particular forms or types of education and training considered in this context: access to information; research and experimentation; programs of study and teaching materials; training of personnel; technical and vocational education; educating and informing the public; general university education; specialist training; and international and regional co-operation.
