Product Description
The various international and regional meetings on
environmental education (EE) organized by Une.sco since 1975,
with the co-operation of the United Nations Environment
Programme (UNEP), have stressed the importance of developing
appropriate content and methods for the incorporation of an
environmental dimension into various levels and types of
education. In this pers,pect ive, special emphasis was placed on
content and methods which stimulate development of
interdisciplinary teaching-learning approaches oriented towards
the solution of concrete envl.ronmental problems.
In the light of these considerations, the Unesco-UNEP
International Environmental Education Programme (IEEP) has
undertaken the preparation of a series of publications dealing with
strategies for the integration of an environmental dimension into
school and out-of-school education. Among the principal questions
related to the content of EE is that of the treatment of environmental
values during educational processes. In fact, the development of
a spirit of responsibility and solidarity enabling society to cope
with environmental problems implies, besides proper knowledge
and skills, new attitudes and behavioural patterns towards the
environment. These changes cannot be really brought about until
most members of a given society have freely interiorized more
constructive attitudes on values, which will constitute the basis
for a self-discipline ruling relationships between man and the
environment. EE should, with this aim in view, strive to analyse
and correlate the concerns and values of individuals and

communities insofar as these affect the environment.

This guide on environmental values education aims at

providing basic theoretical and practical knowledge for the purpose

of stimulating teachers as well as specialists in charge of curricula

and materials development in the field of EE, to explicitly introduce

into their programmes and educational practices, together with

cognitive content, the treatment of environmental values.The guide

comprises two parts. The first develops fundamentals of values

education - the nature of values, principal environmental values

education strategies, as well as orientations for a holistic approach

to environmental ethics. The second provides selected examples

of the value components of various environmental problems, which

can be handled in primary and secondary education.
