- Publisher's Summary
- This book explores the intersections between curriculum studies and sustainability. Recognizing that a bioregion is our life place and that curriculum studies is the interdisciplinary study of lived experience, this book engages in scholarship grounded in advancing ecological stewardship. By emphasizing an eco-curriculum, education can respond to the need to understand and preserve the ecological complexities that help maintain and restore biospheric wellness. This book will enable the reader to become better situated to formulate a more inspired, informed, and transformative understanding of the overlap between sustainability and education.
