This course will provide a broad overview of the Environmental Education movement by constructing a working definition of its goals and the various manifestations of those goals within local, regional, state, national and international organizations. We will explore the personal values that drive people to choose environmental education as a profession and look at the implications of that choice on lifestyle, civic participation, relationships and work-life. Students will predict possible future scenarios for environmental educators and their role in the organizations that support their efforts.
