Climate Change and Environmental Education: Framing Perspectives

Environmental education (EE) is in a powerful position to address climate change because of its history of incorporating science with policy education, and proven ability to evolve in response to social and environmental change. The purpose of the paper is to stimulate discussion about the implications of climate change for EE practice, and to suggest ways that EE practices might effectively address climate change. The viewpoints expressed here were synthesized from the remarks of a panel of six climate change experts from diverse fields presented at a workshop held June 3 2014, at New York University in New York City.
