More than 4 weeks availability


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. It is also a valuable tool for professionals in both public and private sector who are dealing with these issues daily. Bill and Steve's book for Routledge, Sustainable Development and Learning: framing the issues is one of the academic sources cited by the United Nations in its draft international implementation scheme for the Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (which was launched by Kofi Annan last month).
