Environmental education for all ages is a critical step in fostering sustainable behaviours and achieving higher level environmental goals. This course takes an interdisciplinary approach to studying environmental education, examining the cognitive and social science underpinnings of behaviour change. Through course readings and experiential "hands-on" learning opportunities, students are invited to critically evaluate how environmental educators create effective and authentically engaging programs. This course provides an overview of program evaluation techniques as well as environmental education in formal school settings, wilderness settings, urban environmental education, and how mass media influence environmental behaviour.
