The environment and contested notions of sustainability are increasingly topics of public interest, political debate, and legislation across the world. Environmental education journals now publish research from a wide variety of methodological traditions that show linkages between the environment, health, development, and education. The growth in scholarship makes this an opportune time to review and synthesize the knowledge base of the environmental education (EE) field. The purpose of this 51-chapter handbook is not only to illuminate the most important concepts, findings and theories that have been developed by EE research, but also to critically examine the historical progression of the field, its current debates and controversies, what is still missing from the EE research agenda, and where that agenda might be headed. Published for the American Educational Research Association (AERA).

What underlies the Finnish success in international comparisons of education? The Nordic strategy for building up high quality and equality in education has beeen based on constructing a publicly funded comprehensive school system without selecting, tracking or streaming students during their basic education until the age of 16. This book consists of a rich and stimulating collection of articles dealing with educational institutions, education policy and life histories of learners in a swiftly changing Nordic society. Educational contexts covered range from comprehensive school and special education to higher education and lifelong learning. The articles can be read as studies on the extent and form of the realization of a Finnish learning society within global, Nordic and national parameters. In part I, the development of Finnish educational institutions and education policy in recent decades is studied from different major perspectives. Phases of the comprehensive education system, a shift in moral education, representations of educability and the realization of lifelong learning are studied and discussed. In part II a few very interesting examples of educational innovations are described and analysed. The sample ranges from the "physical learning objects which can improve soical skills" in special education or the use of ICT in special education and in a local community to the regional engagement of universities, the finnish adult education and training initiative to multicultural education. Part III: A knowledge-based economy and the creation of education and learning opportunities for all people can be defined as major necessary conditions for the attainment of a learning society. In this part the place and meaning of education and learning in life history and in everyday life of people from various backgrounds and dispositions are investigated.
