Urban Environmental Education Review
Edited by: Alex Russ and Marianne Krasny
Cornell University Press 2017
I am the first editor of the "Urban Environmental Education Review" book, which explores how environmental education can contribute to urban sustainability. Urban environmental education includes any practices that create learning opportunities to foster individual and community well-being and environmental quality in cities. It encompasses novel educational approaches and helps debunk common assumptions that cities are ecologically barren and that city people don't care for, or need, urban nature or a healthy environment.
This book includes 30 chapters by 82 authors from 19 countries. Topics range from the urban context to theoretical underpinnings and educational settings, participants, and educational approaches in urban environmental education. Chapters integrate research and practice to help aspiring and practicing environmental educators, urban planners, and other environmental leaders achieve their goals related to education, youth and community development, and environmental quality in cities.
