With contributions from renowned writers and educators such as Fritjof Capra, Wendell Berry and Michael Ableman, Ecological Literacy brings together theory and practice based on the very latest in systems thinking, ecology and education. Parents and educators from all over the world interested in developing new ways of teaching and expanding children's ecological knowledge will find this book an invaluable source of ideas. The concept of “ecological literacy”, inspired by the theories of Fritjof Capra and other leaders at the Center for Eco-Literacy, located in Berkeley, California, goes beyond environmental education as a school subject. It aims, as David W. ORr wrote in his Prologue, “a deeper transformation in the content, process and scope of education at all levels”.
