Earth education is traditionally confined to specific topics: ecoliteracy, outdoor education, environmental science. But in the coming century, on track to be the warmest in human history, every aspect of human life will be affected by our changing planet. Emerging diseases, food shortages, drought, and waterlogged cities are just some of the unprecedented challenges that Earth education is traditionally confined to specific topics: ecoliteracy, outdoor education, environmental science. But in the coming century, on track to be the warmest in human history, every aspect of human life will be affected by our changing planet. Emerging diseases, food shortages, drought, and waterlogged cities are just some of the unprecedented challenges that today’s students will face.

Answers are being developed in universities, preschools, professional schools, and even prisons around the world. In the latest volume of State of the World, a diverse group of education experts share innovative approaches to teaching and learning in a new era.

    State of the World publications are consistently interesting. The education focus for 2017 was very good with a range of essays addressing different age groups and the efforts in different cultures. As David Orr said: "All education must be environmental education." State of the World publications are consistently interesting.

    Esential reading for educators The book offers inspiration, examples and theoretical background for the development of an ecological curriculum. Particularly the first part of the book has some very good contributions, discussing different aspects of education and schooling systems. The second part, on higher education, was a bit less directly applicable to teaching, in my view. However, it did offer some interesting perspectives on the many different reasons why we need to rethink society from Esential reading for educators The book offers inspiration, examples and theoretical background for the development of an ecological curriculum.
