Chapter 19: Environmental education
The chapter provides an account of the development of environmental education in schools and in higher education. Environmental degradation is now a matter for concern in China, especially given the country’s rapid economic growth. The chapter argues that environmental education has benefited from the traditional Chinese concept of social learning or tianren heyi, which regards humanity as an integral part of nature. It concludes that sustainable development should continue to see greater government investment in environmental education and co-operation with non-governmental organizations.
