In view of the overwhelming pressures on the global environment and the need to disrupt the systems that drive them, an ecosystemic theoretical and practical framework is posited for the evaluation and planning of public policies, research and teaching programmes, encompassing four dimensions of being-in-the-world (intimate, interactive, social and biophysical), as they combine, as donors and recipients, to induce the events (deficits/assets), cope with consequences (desired/undesired) and contribute to change (potential outputs). The focus is not on the “bubbles” of the surface (consequences, fragmented issues), but on the configurations deep inside the boiling pot where the problems emerge.
The Environmental Education Research Bulletin (EERB) is a collaborative project with ChangeScale, NAAEE, and Dr. Nicole Ardoin at Stanford University. The research bulletins synthesize and summarize recently reported research from journals focused on issues pertaining to environmental educators. The bulletins include articles related to environmental education evaluation, sense of place, environmental behavior, teaching practices, and professional development, among other relevant topics. Issue 10 is now available!
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently launched its annual update of EJSCREEN, the Agency's nationally acclaimed environmental justice screening and mapping tool.
