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.
