Ecological Literacy: Educating Our Children for a Sustainable World
Edited by Michael K. Stone and Zenobia Barlow, Preface by Fritjof Capra
The concept of “ecological literacy” advanced by this book’s editors, the Center for Ecoliteracy, extends “toward a deeper transformation of the sub-stance, process and scope of education at all levels,” as David Orr writes in his Foreword. Contributors include Fritjof Capra, Wendell Berry, David Orr, Alice Waters and the late Donella Meadows. Parents and educators will find this book an invaluable resource.
“This highly original volume makes a critical contribution to rethinking how we teach our children about their place in nature. The best book of its kind.” — Michael Pollan, author, Omnivore’s Dilemma
