The CJEE realizes the impact teacher educators have on future generations of teachers and their students, and as such the editors felt it was time to dedicate a volume to the topic.
– Editorial by Karrow, Inwood & Sims, p. 6
It’s finally here! The latest issue of the Canadian Journal of Environmental Education (CJEE) recently published online is a special edition taking a closer look at Environmental and Sustainability Education (ESE) in Teacher Education (TE) in Canada. This brand new issue is guest edited by Doug Karrow (Brock University), Hilary Inwood (OISE/University of Toronto) and Laura Sims (Université de St. Boniface) and takes a look at what’s happening in Canadian Teacher Education from coast to coast. The seven articles comprising this edition represent a variety of topics, contexts, problems, methodological approaches and more.
This publication marks the very first time in the CJEE’s 23 year history that a volume has been devoted to exclusively to Teacher Education. Inspired by the last Research Symposium held by the ESE-TE National Network, this special issue is a testament to the ESE-TE Network’s strong belief in the importance of having a “vibrant and thriving ESE-TE research community” to drive the field forward.
We are thrilled to share a NEW book edited by Douglas Karrow and Maurice DiGiuseppethat leads readers on a richly detailed and highly engaging exploration of Environmental and Sustainability Education (ESE) in teacher education all over Canada. Environmental and sustainability education: Canadian perspectives (Springer, 2020) offers a wide variety of perspectives on what is happening in ESE in pre-service classrooms across the country. As the third volume in Springer’s International Explorations in Outdoor and Environmental Education this book showcases and honours the essential contributions Canadian teachers, researchers and teacher educators have made to the conversation about engaging future teachers within ESE.
As a current doctoral student studying teacher candidates’ experiences in ESE, this in depth text has been an asset to my own research. It serves as a guide to the most recent literature in Canadian ESE by introducing scholars doing critical work in the field. It also inspires my own dissertation by showcasing the myriad of ways we can approach contextualizing ESE and studying its impacts on pre-service teachers. This is a must-read for anyone looking for an excellent overview to the current landscape of ESE in Canadian teacher education.

EECOM’s Environmental and Sustainability Education in Teacher Education (ESE-TE) Standing Committee will be hosting a bi-annual Research Symposium on April 28th, 2021 at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education of the University of Toronto (OISE/UT), in Toronto, Ontario.
The focus of the upcoming research symposium is on research activities in the field of ESE in preservice and inservice teacher education. The research symposium is meant to be an opportunity to share research in a supportive community of like-minded individuals who are committed to furthering the field of ESE-TE. The symposium is academic in style, featuring 15-20 minute presentations. To date, presenters have been notified of acceptance. All people interested in this area of research are welcome to attend!
