NEW Book – Environmental and sustainability education: Canadian perspectives (Springer, 2020) edited by Karrow & DiGiuseppe

We are thrilled to share a NEW book edited by Douglas Karrow and Maurice DiGiuseppe that 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.
