Creating a sustainable future is one of the biggest challenges that we face as a human race. This is often made even harder by the apathy of many towards the need for sustainability. Education will play a crucial role in finding a solution to the global climate crisis, by shaping future generations
who are informed, enlightened and ready to take action.
This book explores the value of institutions of higher education in leading the way on the topic of sustainability education by ensuring that it is well entrenched in the curriculum, as well as in everyday practice and lifestyles. This unique volume features authors from different parts of the world
who narrate their own experience of integrating sustainability into their curriculum, and teaching sustainability to students.
By exploring the idea that education and sustainability should be seen as intrinsically linked if we are to see global change, this important text will prove invaluable for leaders, scholars and policy specialists in higher education.
The Earth's climate is changing faster than at any point in the history of modern civilisation through human-induced global warming, yet public reactions to this scientific truth remain dissonant. Inspired by a 2019 conference, Moana Water of Life, this book showcases the challenges and potential
fruits of an open dialogue between stakeholders to navigate the critical challenges to planetary health caused by the climate crisis.
Inviting participants to contribute 'in their own voices', this book cuts across real-life insights, ranging from researchers from the Pacific Islands Region on the front line of devastating water surpluses and shortages, to the thoughts of leading climate change and Earth scientists, social
scientists, educators, faith leaders, theologians and activists who are offering practical solutions to the problem. By highlighting this collection of inspiring stories at the local and global levels, the authors offer a vision of hope for communities in the future to communicate, adapt to change
and ultimately resist further deterioration of the planet's health.
