Ecopedagogy and Citizenship in the Age of Globalization: Connections between Environmental and Global Citizenship Education

By Greg W. Misiaszek

Chair: Liz Jackson

Understanding the connections between environmentally detrimental acts and social conflict is essential for our planet’s survival. Ecopedagogy is based on social and environmental justice models, and uses critical, dialogical teaching to help students understand these connections. With intensifying globalization, constructions of citizenship are being transformed beyond traditional ones to include socio-environmental rights and responsibilities.

The seminar will discuss the nature of ecopedagogy and why it should be part of citizenship education.

Dr. Misiaszek is Assistant Professor in the Institute for Educational Theories, Faculty of Education at Beijing Normal University. He is also a director of Communications of the World Council of Comparative Education Societies (WCCES).
