Rethink, Refuse, Reduce
Education for Sustainability in a Changing World
Wow! I thought I knew a bit about sustainable development, but this book has taken me to a whole new level.
The book Rethink Refuse Reduce exposes problems in current thinking about sustainable development, and suggests new solutions. The book includes a wealth of information about the subject, considering issues of consumption, trade regulations, transport and a variety of other environmental issues. Intelligently presented activities, quotes, fact boxes, discussion points, illustrations, briefing documents, and an interesting section on teaching and learning styles make this book excellent value for money.
Although the book addresses complex issues, they are presented in an accessible, thoughtful language. The book dramatically departs from the standard recycling-focused environmental education approach, and suggests that much more is needed at the individual, local, national and international level.
The book would be ideal for a professional development session, and includes ideas that could be adapted for the classroom, for an advanced 14-16 or post-16 audience.
