Sustainable and Solidary Education

Reflections and Practices

by Monica Tilea (Volume editor) Oana-Adriana Duţă (Volume editor) Alina Stela Reşceanu (Volume editor)
Edited Collection 414 Pages

Summary

This volume of thematic studies offers multifaceted interpretations of education for sustainable and solidary development (ESSD). It is a joint work of academics, teachers and researchers covering the domain of education from the perspective of economy, social sciences, language studies, communication and pedagogy. The authors propose a range of reflections and empirical studies which refer to: various means and methods for an effective teaching/learning process; transversal skills related to ESSD; and the importance of financial resources and quality assurance in education. The unitary and original endeavour of this volume establishes a common meeting point for devising up-to-date methods and practices across disciplines, with a view to supporting sustainable and solidary education.
