Transformative Environmental Education: Stepping Outside the Curriculum Box
AbstractEnvironmental education has become trapped in the curriculum box. At a time when our students' generation is becoming trapped in a global warming box, their education needs to be rapidly adaptable to the changing state of their planet. Venturing outside the curriculum box takes courage, creativity, and a willingness to let nature serve as the teacher. This paper provides a rationale for stepping outside the box, and discusses my experiences as an environmental education coordinator working to create transformative learning experiences for students.
