INSIGHTS FOR ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION
When we honor the hidden aquifer that feeds human knowing, we are more likely to develop capacity for awe, wonder, and humility that deepens rather than diminishes our knowledge. (Palmer & Zajonc, 2010, p. 22)
This chapter reconnects with the introduction of this book by proposing that the project of restoration is, in fact, a restoration of EE, congruent with its historical dictate (i.e., the Belgrade Charter and Tbilisi Declaration). Throughout this work, I have focused on the broad process of education and maintained that all education is environmental education. However, in this chapter I examine the specific field of environmental education. I begin by exploring a few significant themes in EE, which can and should inform traditional education and the project of restoration.
