There is widespread consensus in the international scientific community that climate change is happening and that abrupt and irreversible impacts are already set in motion. What part does education have to play in helping alleviate rampant climate change and in mitigating its worst effects? In this volume, contributors review and reflect upon social learning from and within their fields of educational expertise in response to the concerns over climate change. They address the contributions the field is currently making to help preempt and mitigate the environmental and social impacts of climate change, as well as how it will continue to respond to the ever changing climate situation. With a special foreword by Desmond Tutu, Archbishop Emeritus of Cape Town.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The mosaic of inspiring and vanguard ideas graciously offered and shared by the authors in this collection has the power to truly transform global conversations about education for climate change....The book is an easy read, hard to put down, drawing you back over and over again....I highly recommend it for a wide range of audiences. It is well worth the price. You will not be disappointed, and, as with me, will likely be inspired."--Journal of Cleaner Production 18 (2010), 696-697

"This is an important and provocative book that brings to view many issues that are too frequently lost in the hype and hubbub. A valuable contribution to the debate that should be read by all those concerned with education and the future of our planet."--Dr. John Blewitt, Director MSc Sustainable Development at the University of Exeter, UK

"An extremely timely volume [that] includes an impressive range of authors, impressive not only in their intellectual standing in the field, but also being a genuinely global range of authors, many of whom are also active outside the classroom on civil society and political activities on climate change and sustainability issues....this book makes an important contribution to our understanding of the multidimensional problem of climate change as the dominant issue of the 21st century."--Policy & Practice: A Development Education Review

"Although this book is academic in tone, the practical implications of its theories make it essential reading for curriculum designers and educators interested in improving climate change education."-Green Teacher Magazine

"Education and Climate Change: Living and Learning in Interesting Times should be seen as an important contribution to climate change studies, especially for graduate students who want to glimpse the many sides of environmental education. Educators, practitioners, pedagogues and scientists would certainly benefit from this timely book." - Yves Laberge, Electronic Green Journal
