Lifelong Learning and Environmental Education

Walter Leal Filho

This book, prepared in connection with the European Year of Lifelong Learning and the UNESCO International Conference on Adult Education in Hamburg, outlines some ideas related to lifelong learning and the environment, dealing with environmental issues in contexts such as adult education, community-based education, and quality of learning. A balanced emphasis to formal and nonformal education is given. The book also contains case studies illustrating how environmental adult education is dealt with in a sample of industrialised and developing countries, offering a wider view of the theme and of its diversity.
