Creative Place - Based Environmental Education shows how schools can become creative hubs for enriching the community, with students as ecopreneurs caring for nature, the landscape and community. The authors have researched the why, what and how of creative place-based education for over 20 years in Aurland, in Sognefjord, Norway. This hands - on approach embraces the whole locality as an inspiring educational resource, as a school without walls. Here are useful and creative design tools for developing place-based education for teachers everywhere, which:
. Engage children in environmental education projects.
. Enable teachers to design creative place-based education for children aged 4-18, with relevant theory, principles, examples and tools
. Engage children with ever widening learning circles from home, garden, school to the wider world.
. Promote ecopreneurship in schools.
. Give examples from Britain, Norway, and Tanzania.
Teachers from kindergarten to high schools, teacher trainers, environmental educators and forest school educators will find this is a invaluable resource. Schools, councils, parks, wildlife trusts and communities can use it for designing creative place - based education.
'Here is a Beacon of Hope, an exciting approach to creative place - based education... intertwines theory, practice and place and asks significant questions related to place-based sustainability, food growing and education. It asks, 'What is Home? How can learning how local food is grown and help children discover what it means to belong? How do teachers get students to care?"
