Environment and School Initiatives Lessons from the ENSI Network – Past, Present and Future
“Environment and School Initiatives” (ENSI) was an international network, offering a platform for cooperation among practitioners, researchers and policy makers in the fields of Environmental Education and Education for Sustainable Development. Innovative environmental projects, Action Research, Quality Criteria for ESD schools, Teacher competencies for ESD and the Whole School Approach are main features that ENSI promoted throughout its lifespan. The current book gives an overview on ENSI’s history, its impact on national contexts in three continents, its ways of collaboration and the lessons learnt in thirty years of work. More than forty internationally acknowledged experts share their experience and provoke forward-looking thoughts about education, science, sensitive problems and new concepts for networking.
