Special Issue "Environmental Education for Sustainable Development"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 May 2015).
Interests: education for sustainable development; environmental education; biodiversity; mobile learning; biology education
Education for a sustainable development (ESD) claims to be a basic tool to develop a sustainable future on our planet and also to enhance the quality of teaching. Therefore, there is a need of pedagogical and educational grounded concepts that are evaluated scientifically in order to get to know the fundamentals and success factors of teaching sustainable development.
This Special Issue aims to focus on the pedagogical aspects of sustainable development. We think, that papers that cover research on teaching education for sustainable development in school settings as well as in out of school contexts can find a place in this Special Issue. These could be formative as well as summative evaluations, studies on teaching or learning concepts or teaching settings that motivate and empower learners to change their behavior and take action for sustainable development. Similarly, works on ESD in higher education institutions would be of great interest to readers.
Thus, this Special Issue aims to provide a comprehensive overview of current research activities related to this topical theme.
