Smith, Caroline; Watson, Jane – Australian Journal of Environmental Education, 2019
In this article, we outline the key principles of education for sustainability (EfS) that enable us to question the enthusiastic and uncritical promotion of STEM (science, mathematics, engineering and technology) and its offshoot, STEM education, as key contributors to an environmentally sustainable future. We examine the framing of STEM and STEM…

Ram, Rajesh – Australian Journal of Environmental Education, 2019
The Australian brushtail possum ("Trichosurus vulpecula") is one of many animal species classifed as alien under the biosecurity system in New Zealand. However, it is against the possums that a relentless campaign is perpetrated. This article attempts to explain some of the many reasons behind such intense negativity, and in doing so,…

Casinader, Niranjan; Kidman, Gillian – Australian Journal of Environmental Education, 2018
Common notions around the concept of sustainability tend to be framed within the values and principles that the world's natural environments need to be used and managed in such a way as to make them available for future generations. Consequently, pedagogical approaches in environmental education that follow this intellectual thread tend to adopt a…

Siegel, Lisa; Cutter-Mackenzie-Knowles, Amy; Bellert, Anne – Australian Journal of Environmental Education, 2018
In their seminal 2002 paper, Kollmuss and Agyeman asked the important question 'Why do people act environmentally and what are the barriers to pro-environmental behaviour?' The article has had a remarkably high rate of readership, with 64,900 electronic views to date, and 16 years later, this question remains significant. But are environmental…

Gerofsky, Susan; Ostertag, Julia – Australian Journal of Environmental Education, 2018
The co-authors, collaborators in garden-based teacher education, question the hegemony of grids in Western time, space and relationship structures in education, while also delving into our own complicity and entanglement with these grids. We ask: (1) Can we reject the grid in environmental education and in garden-based learning when it is an…

This article uses an unconventional format to explore the role of parent and nature and the development of a young child's ecological identity. It follows journal entries from a mother observing her young son, Julian, as he explores, interacts with, and learns from the Stawamus River on the west coast of British Columbia. By creating questions,…

Dawson, Kate; Beattie, Elizabeth – Australian Journal of Environmental Education, 2018
We tell the story of an experience Kate Dawson, her students, and three eagles had at an outdoor preschool. The experience profoundly affected Kate, and prompted us to ask the following questions: What made this experience feel so magical, and what caused it to happen? Why are these "magical moments" valuable, and how might they impact…

Rousell, David – Australian Journal of Environmental Education, 2016
Over the last three decades, scientists have uncovered the extent of human impacts on the earth's operating systems with increasing clarity and precision. These findings have prompted scientific claims that we have transitioned out of the Holocene and into the Anthropocene epoch in the earth's geological history (Crutzen & Stoermer, 2000). At…

Higgins, Blanche; Thomas, Ian – Australian Journal of Environmental Education, 2016
Education for sustainability (EfS) is widely supported and researched; however, the broad and deep implementation of EfS in universities that is needed lags behind the goals of change agents. This article reviews literature on change procedures; in particular, curriculum change in universities. Our aim was to develop insights into strategies…

Elliott, Sue; Young, Tracy – Australian Journal of Environmental Education, 2016
This essay critiques the relevance of historical antecedents about children's play in nature and how these historical and political mechanisms create cultural rovoked by Taylor's (2013) exploration of the pervasive influence of romanticised images of innocent children in nature and our own experiences of never-ending "nice" stories about…

Piatti-Farnell, Lorna – Australian Journal of Environmental Education, 2015
In recent years, food scholarship has extended its preoccupation with consumption to interrogating the relationship between eating, culture and waste, and their effects on the environment. Simultaneously, food-related concerns have also become a recurrent part of popular culture, where examples from children's television provide fertile ground for…

Swan, Elaine; Flowers, Rick – Australian Journal of Environmental Education, 2015
In our paper, we draw on recent scholarship on food pedagogies and pedagogy studies to explore themes in the collection of articles in this special issue. In particular, we show how the articles variously conceptualise formal and informal pedagogies, their curricula, aims, and potential effects in relation to food and sustainability. Drawing on…
