This book presents seminal readings from existing literature alongside specially commissioned, critical vignettes from leading thinkers with interests in sustainable development and learning. The book sets out to inform readers about the many perspectives that exist, and to challenge assumptions they may have about both sustainable development and learning.
Through the readings and vignettes, the book raises wide-ranging issues of how we choose to act. Following the format of its companion volume, Sustainable Development and Learning: framing the issues, the book builds on existing work across a number of fields as well as on original international research.
Key Issues in Sustainable Development and Learning: a critical review is a major resource for anyone studying for masters degrees focusing on environment and sustainable development.
