Environmental Education: Key Issues of the Future contains the proceedings of a conference held at the College of Technology in Hampshire, England. The conference provided a forum for discussing the role of education in environmental training, analyzing the problems of environmental education, and proposing innovations that might well affect the future. Comprised of eight chapters, this book first looks at the methods for use in the professional training of teachers, with reference to the research and development studies that have been carried out on these training methods. The place of environmental studies in the school and the factors that have led to an increased interest in these studies are considered. The chief obstacles to the progress of these studies in the secondary schools are outlined. The reader is then introduced to the role of environmental science in the formal education service; problems of subject integration in environmental science; and the UNESCO/UNEP environmental program and its implications for environmental education in Britain. International cooperation in environmental education is also discussed, along with part-time and recurrent education in the environmental field. This monograph will be of value to engineers, planners, biologists, lawyers, geologists, and others with an active interest in environmental problems.
