Control and Sensing of environmental Quality (Volume 8)

 
S.N. Mishra (Editor) R. Swarup (Editor) V.P. Jauhari (Editor)
Synopsis Environmental education is an approach to learning, not a subject of study. It endeavours to create a way of thinking requiring people to overcome prejudices as a result of the differing views of fields such as biology, chemistry, economics, social sciences and politics. It leads to the opening of the mind to ever new aspects of the universe. Environmental education thus is a new kind of integrative teaching characterised by encouraging inclusive thinking by a continuous training of habits in small steps and by the development of a general attitude of openness to new aspects. It is through this process that individuals and the community gain awareness of their environment and acquire knowledge, skills, experience and the determination to act-individually and collectively-to solve environmental problems. Environmental education has assumed great importance in recent times because many of the environmental issues are global in nature and require the understanding and co-operation of all the people.
