Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
The aim of the Special Issue Teaching and Learning for Sustainability is to bring together empirical and theoretical research from different fields in the quest for good life on the finite planet. Too often, education reproduces the existing worldviews, value systems, and practices. In the Anthropocene era, transformative learning and transdisciplinary approaches are very much needed. Our common desirable future on planet Earth is described by Agenda 2030: “We resolve, between now and 2030, to end poverty and hunger everywhere; to combat inequalities within and among countries; to build peaceful, just and inclusive societies; to protect human rights and promote gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls; and to ensure the lasting protection of the planet and its natural resources.”
Teaching and Learning for Sustainability focuses on social and behavioural changes to have sustainable lifestyle and culture. The approach of the Special Issue is transdisciplinary, where ecological, social, and economic aspects can be linked. A viewpoint of your article submitted to the Special Issue can focus on climate education, global education, human rights education, environmental education, or future education. Additionally, deliberation concerning the adoption of eco-social education emphasizing a responsible relationship with the world is warmly welcomed.Dr. Arto O Salonen
