Review of the book Learning for Sustainability in Times of Accelerating Change, by A. E. J. Wals & P. B. Corcoran

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article reviewpeer-review


Education can engage with sustainability in various ways. Schools and universities can make use of sustainable practices in their infrastructure and methods, teach skills that support sustainable behaviour, or function as vehicles for raising awareness about threats to our climate and other global issues. “Learning for sustainability in times of accelerating change” covers all of these aspects, but —perhaps most importantly — it urges a rethink of the scope, methodology and underpinnings of education such that it contributes to tackling human impact on the planet.
