ECA’s Box of Provocations for Our Earth will help educators carefully embed sustainable practice into their early learning setting, teaching children to restore, preserve and nurture the natural world.

Early learning settings are well placed to set the foundations for this. As an educator, you might embrace contemporary concerns about the environment and have a strong desire to teach children to not only enjoy and value the natural world but also restore, preserve and nurture it. But how do you make this part of your practice?

The provocations in this box will help you do exactly that. They have been written by experts in the fields of sustainability and nature pedagogy, sharing multiple perspectives and multiple voices to provide rich perspectives. Some provocations are an explicit invitation to question and debate—they will prompt you to define and describe what you think—while others represent the writers’ strongly held beliefs. They will help you invite alternative perspectives or reservations about the views expressed in these cards.

Themes:

  • theories and worldviews
  • engaging children in sustainability
  • nature pedagogy in Australia
  • nature play and intentional teaching
  • activism, advocacy and community engagement
  • beyond the basics
  • the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspective
  • nature pedagogy internationally

Description

Thinking about a sustainable future is the need of the hour. As we slowly come to terms with the environmental, social and economic issues that the world has been facing, we need to re-evaluate how we can live in harmony with the natural world and conserve resources for generations to come.

Early learning settings are well-placed to set the foundations for this. As an educator, you might embrace contemporary concerns about the environment and have a strong desire to teach children to not only enjoy and value the natural world but also restore, preserve and nurture it. But, how do you make this part of your practice?

The answer is gradually and with careful consideration. ECA’s Box of Provocations for Our Earth will help you question your everyday professional doing and thinking. The provocations across eight different themes, written by experts from the fields of sustainability and nature pedagogy, will prompt you to find different ways of doing things; perhaps even undergo mind-shifts about what you value and how you see the world.
