Education for Sustainable Human and Environmental Systems : From Theory to Practice Hardback
Edited by Will Focht, Michael A. Reiter, Paul A. Barresi, Richard C. Smardon
Part of the Routledge Studies in Sustainability series
The goal of Sustainable Human and Environmental Systems (SHES) education is to prepare students to facilitate social learning in communities that builds knowledge of, capacity for, and commitment to sustainability to facilitate the emergence of sustainable societies. The SHES approach to sustainability education relies on complexity-based systems thinking that transcends disciplinary boundaries.
This book provides a comprehensive guide to the SHES approach, including its rationale and theoretical foundation, its pedagogy and practical applications in curricula, and ways to support the approach through institutional administration. This book will be of great interest to academics and students of education, environmental sciences and studies, sustainability and sustainable development, natural resource management, conservation, environmental policy, environmental planning, and related fields in higher education.
Educators can use this book as a guide to SHES pedagogy, curriculum design, sustainability, environmental studies, sustainable development, and sustainable well-being.
Administrators will find the book useful in establishing, evaluating, staffing, and promoting programs based on the SHES approach.
