There has been seen a lot of impacts, some good, some bad. That depends on a lot of factors in each region. But overall, what is short, medium and long-term impacts of COVID-19 that we are going to see in the future of ocean sustainability?
I would like to work on Environmental Education as a general topic for my thesis, specifically how it is integrated into the language curriculum.
I am part of a research group focused on the study of teaching methods aimed at fostering sustainable societies. For the future we aim to focus on some core issues that we believe are fundamental for the advancement of these forms of education in Brazil and worldwide, namely: Discuss the relationships between environmental education, sustainability education and citizenship education and try to identify the similarities and differences of their proposals. Our initial hypothesis is that citizenship education perhaps satisfactorily embraces the postulates and principles of the other two pedagogies and can thus be understood as one of the most holistic and comprehensive forms of human education. What do you think?
Faço parte de um grupo de pesquisa focado no estudo de formas de ensino voltadas ao fomento de sociedades sustentáveis. Para o futuro almejamos enfocar algumas questões centrais que acreditamos ser fundamentais para o avanço dessas formas de ensino no Brasil e no mundo, quais sejam: Discutir as relações entre a educação ambiental, a educação para a sustentabilidade e a educação para a cidadania e tentar identificar as similaridades e diferenças de suas propostas. A nossa hipótese inicial é de que a educação para a cidadania talvez abarque satisfatoriamente os postulados e princípios das outras duas pedagogias e assim pudesse ser compreendida como uma das formas de educação humana mais holística e abrangente. O que você acha?
Anyone know anything thing about Philosophy for Children (P4C) applied on Environmental Education or Education for sustainable development?
Dear researchers.... I have been working on the integration of art and EEE (Ecological Environmental Education) as a more efficient approach in environmental education,but have not been very much successful in finding an appropriate curriculum for " children" in this regard. I would be glad if you have further information that can guide me through the procedure.
which one could provide more values?
Examples of green technologies such as solar panels, water harvesting tank, energy efficiency features etc. Farming as in planting & growing vegetables.
We know the importance of a healthy environment, and we should take all the possible measures to keep our environment healthy. Environmental education and protection are crucial for the benefit of both the environment and humans. What should be our thoughts on this in the next phase of COVID-19 pandemic destruction?
We are conducting a study that practically implemented a combination of different learning approaches to foster systems thinking competence in the context of sustainability and in a real-world setting. The learning approaches include mobile learning, collaborative learning, and field trips. What journals would you recommend for such a study?
Thanks in advance!
What is complexity theory and how can I use it in studying school culture?
The world experiences a union for a cause that afflicts everyone. What difference does this cause have to the cause of climate change and why are they not all engaged as for COVID? Can environmental education change this reality?
If you see a message which tells you in an aggressive way "don´t throw your trash to the floor" you don´t do it? this is a research question that I wanted to answer in a higher education institution from Colombia. I wanted to explore the behaviorism as an environmental education tool. Please, if some of you know the literature about it, I'll appreciate if you share it.
Roughly, the three funcions of protected natural areas are 1) conservation of natural resources (biodiversity, natural sites or monuments...), 2) sustainable development for local-regional areas, 3) environmental education. Lots of surveys have been made, and can be found in specialized literature, but I get difficulties to find only one that be oriented on that third so-important function. Do anyone know a specific tourists' survey on it? Or maybe a questionnaire for tourists or visitors with a specific part on how a natural protected area (e.g. a National Park) is being fulfilled? Thanks!
High school curricula in developing countries in which Ethiopia is not exception lack integration of spatial science; Geography, Environmental Education and Environmental Management.
how are these sciences integrated to enhance better Environmental perception?
I am working on a project in which I am planning to prepare a questionnaire having items to assess population's awareness and perception on climate change.
While searching for scale, I found a Climate Steward Survey (CSS) developed by Scott L. Walker and published in International Electronic Journal of Environmental Education (which may be used for perception) (paper is attached).
I want to ask what are the alternative standardized scale (like environment attitude, belief etc..) which can be used, if there is no standardized scale on population's awareness and perception on climate change?
Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) and Microcontrollers (µCs), what difference and what can orientate the choice of one instead of another?
I need empirical research on the relationship between artificial intelligence and the rise of populism.

Any recommended literatures/ journals/ books on biodiversity teaching?

Environmental education has been introduced as compulsory subject at all levels of education from primary to graduate (college) level but often it remains as a neglected one. We hardly find any subject teacher in secondary, higher secondary schools and colleges. The very purpose has often been compromised. It is not possible for any (non-subject) teacher to impart lessons on environmental studies to the students properly. In colleges this subject remains in letters, not in spirits. Its presence can only be limited to celebration of World Environmental Day or plantation of some saplings. Environmental sensitization, awareness or beyond that real environmental education and environmental works cannot be possible through such studies. The subject itself cannot be prospered, not even the students of Environmental Science or Environmental Management cannot be moiovated and inspired to opt for those subject as carrier options if there remains ample scope for teachers/assistant professors' positions in schools and colleges..
Do you know if the effect of these designs were later analysed on the users of the spaces?
I would like to evaluate existing urban green areas (e.g. schoolyards, playgrounds, botanical gardens, etc) to see if and how they are contributing to the goals of environmental education. It would be useful to see designes that were already done in this spirit. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: this research is for research in The Netherlands, the UK and Sweden only- while potentially we could expand it to other countries, these three countries are a limit for now.
I am writing an ERC Consolidator Grant 2017 proposal provisionally titled 'Environmental Education: Evaluation of European Education Programs from an Ecocentric Perspective. If there are any interested partners in the field of environmental education and education for sustainable development in The Netherlands, the UK and Sweden, could you please email me with the expression of your interest and experience in this area? Please see short summary below:
This research will investigate the measures of success of environmental education (EE) and education for sustainable development (ESD) in a comparative European context from an ecocentric perspective. EE refers to formally organized programs that take place in schools or protected nature areas, promoting environmental awareness, encouraging sustainable behaviours, and disseminating specific kinds of knowledge about environment. Ecocentric perspective refers to an ethical position that human beings are part of ecosystem, and that integrity of an ecosystem is essential to environmental sustainability. Earlier practice of EE was often instructed by the ecocentric position. Although varying in national contexts, EE was mostly targeted at enabling social change towards green economy and a more sustainable society as well as promoting environmental awareness and positive ecological attitudes characteristic of an ecocentric perspective. The Belgrade Charter identifies the goal of environmental education as: “To develop a world population that is aware of, and concerned about, the environment and its associated problems, and which has the knowledge, skills, attitudes, motivations and commitment to work individually and collectively toward solutions of current problems and the prevention of new ones.” This type of education corresponded with ecocentric aims of safeguarding environmental sustainability for humans and nonhumans alike, and included conservation education, outdoor education, education for deep ecology, post-humanist education, and animal rights education. These types of EE typically combined care for individual animals, entire habitats, as well as people, thus focusing on unity between environmental ethics, animal welfare, and human interests.
Since the completion of the Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (2005 – 2014) initiated by UNESCO many EE scholars have hailed the emergence of the education for sustainable development (ESD) as a progressive transition in the field. Yet, there are very few studies providing empirical evidence of efficacy of EE/ESD in cross-European perspective as far as developing a population ‘that is aware of, and concerned about, the environment and its associated problems’. Also, a large part of ‘sustainability’ education is dominated by anthropocentric concerns intertwined with social and economic objectives, placing environmental protection, at best, as one of many possible positions .
This research aims to address both theoretical as well as practical implications of EE and ESD (further referred to as EE/ESD) practice through cross-European comparison.

I am experimenting with tissue culture at home with my kids and I was looking for some advice one surface disinfecting. Some article I have read suggested 0.5% NaOCI (15% v/v bleach) for 20min, but I am not sure how to replicate this with just house hold clorox bleach? I am no chemist and just looking to expand my kids exposure to science outside of school :-) Thank You
My research project regards outdoor environmental education in natural contexts such as forests and mountains. I am researching relevant authors in order to develop a good theoretical framework.

Dear Academics and Scholars, I need your contributions;
Since the reconceptualization of education for sustainable development, it has become a priority for teacher training programs to reorient their programs to reflect ESD and more recently there has been a call for TVET teacher training to do same. Given the necessity for Education for Sustainable Development (ESD), some TVET teacher training institutions have begun to reorient their programs, especially in developed countries, unlike their developing counterparts. My question is, is it logical and allowed from a research standpoint to assess 'the extent of ESD integration in a TVE teacher training program' especially when it is not known or reported that that such institution has in effect began to integrate ESD into its program curriculum.
a research projects that i am doing for my college so i need some more documents to strengthen my approaches.
Is anyone aware of research that describes (the extent to) which environmental topics are part of primary school children's lifeworld in the UK? Topics can, for example be, climate change, water conflicts, water pollution, air pollution, fossil fuels, renewable energy sources, rewilding, decline of biodiversity, etc.
And where do they encounter these topics? At home? At school? TV programs like Newsround, Blue Peter...? Newspapers? Websites? Children's magazines? Scouts?
Many of us has given a "Yes" response, supporting environmental education to be part of curriculum. For a better understanding, I think it should be given in native/local language but that may bring in the problem of translation of the technical/scientific terms. On the othr hand, a student would not have an understanding of an international language as good as his/her native/local language, to understand the concepts & complexities of environmental issues. Please your response. Thanks. Very best. Mahmood
Can you suggest a good software for qualitative data analysis? My data is in form of interviews, observation notes, worksheets and textbook analysis. With some basic google search, I found this free software called 'RQDA' http://rqda.r-forge.r-project.org/. Has anyone tried it before? If yes, what were your experiences like? Or if you can suggest any better software, that will be a great help.
There are many different projects and activities that aim to reconnect people to 'nature' in one way or another (e.g. forest schools, family bushcraft days, ecotherapy sessions, residential camps for teenagers, arts-based forest projects, etc). I'm interested in how these programs are currently evaluated and what criteria are used to determine whether or not they are 'effective'. I would be grateful for any references, websites, or personal experiences if you are willing to share them.
I happened to attend a workshop on environmental education conducted by several experts and volunteers from Australia. I come up with a question in mind: Could we implement environmental education topics into the teaching of English as a foreign language? If any researcher finds this interesting, why don't we co-operate to work on this project?
Previously examined the effect of social-contextual environments on physical activity motives, but how designing environmentals in terms of architecture affect attitudes and motives for physical activity. For instance, some people would prefer to intend in environments for their physical activities which they enjoying because of its beautiful interior architecture and plan.
I would greatly appreciate if anyone kindly shares with me any plan, research and experience and guides.
Neuroscience has been applied or employed to provide insight in many areas of research and human activity. Does anybody know of any work that falls under the title of environmental or conservation neuroscience? By this I mean research that could directly be used to assist our understanding of environmental protection or play an applied role in conservation activities.
I am trying to find the differences and similiarities of environmental psychological interventions and environmental educational programs.
My focus is on middle school, although I feel that I can learn from any age-level experience. I'm looking at technology or gamification and how it can assist environmental education, place-based education, or field investigation/ exploration.

Can anyone recommend literature on application of deep ecology (Arne Naess) in education? I am familiar with the 1990's works by Dolores LaChapelle, but not more contemporary sources. I would be also interested in co-authering an article on this subject
Can I say that a program which is created within the body of a policy (or, more precisely, within the law that institutes this policy) is an instrument of it? Salamon (2000) differentiates a program from an instrument but are there cases in which it is possible to do that? Or is the difference between them (program and instruments) very clearcut? Any readings dealing with this question?

Is LCA a good method? What do you suggest?
Environmental pollution caused by raw sewage discharge is increasing annually, hence posing health and environmental risks for both nations along the Green-Line. Now, unilateral action on both sides is no guarantee for pollution prevention, what should be done? Is joint action possible? How and who will aid in achieving success stories, if any?
My current research is developing a framework for undergraduate environmental education using a values/ethics approach aimed specifically at assisting both students and educators become better communicators when discussing "wicked" environmental issues.
At the university undergraduate level, do they adequately test knowledge? How many choices should be included in a single question? Should wrong answers be penalized? Are there right and wrong ways of formulating MC questions?
