Also children’s interactions with parents, teachers and peers will affect how they are treated in return (Bronfenbrenner, 1994). Clearly this is why ecologising education is important and by doing so education creates critical thinkers. The potential benefits for young people that are eco-literate are that they can begin to negotiate and act on their own purposes, values and feelings, rather than those that they have uncritically acquired from others (Mezirow, 2000). Through learner driven participation children show that they should be treated as solutionaries, and vital stakeholders in the fight for their sustainable futures. Secondly, there are the exosystem which includes schools and the community, and the macrosystem which includes broader society, such as national customs and political philosophy.
In conclusion, it is hard to achieve sustainable development because it has various dimensions to fulfill their interests in sustainable fashion that suits for natural and socially constructed environment. Environmental justice is claimed when equities of stakeholders and nonhuman beings including future generation are not concerned in the process of development. Essentially, sustainable development cannot be achieved just by altering patterns of practice in relation to the environment, but it requires changing the brooder systems that shape human behavior.
Issue 8 Can Technology Deliver Global Sustainability? As our culture develops, we gradually realize that we have to find a sustainable way of living so that we can protect our race as well as all other races on the planet. Industrialized countries and some developing countries are continuously researching new technology in order to be more environmentally friendly. The issue 8 features the question “Can Technology Deliver Global Sustainability?” The question is a good, controversial question, however, it is too broad to be discussed with one or two articles; the question can be approached from aspects such as environmental, social, economic, etc. Both articles chosen talk about only one fraction of the topic, therefore they cannot answer the question as a whole.
As a society individuals need to make green energy laws at the same time improve the economy. In order for everybody to hop aboard the idea of living green and accept and adapt to forward living every individual shall adopt the fact of green behavior.

Our generation wants to be known as sustainable or the ones who care about the environment and are taking measures to protect it, however many of us do not even know what sustainability means. According to Donald Scherer, sustainability is the act of making sure that what is working for us now in order to meet our needs, should hold true for the future generations as well. We should make sure that resources are renewable and come up with substitutions if they are not. On the other hand, we have Dale Jamieson who focuses on climate change. Jamieson feels that with the help of science we can work towards decreasing the rate at which climate change is occurring in order to protect our environment (Jamieson, 372).
School is a fundamental location for the child’s mind to grow and prosper and the child is able to socialize and adhere to the environment that he or she learns about. In addition to education, simply being a component within the institution also formulates our beliefs. Schools are a prime institution to learn about green education in which it will prepare students to be sustainable in the future. In Ernest Callenbach’s Ecotopia, the protagonist, Will, travels to an ecological utopia where he learns how to live in a sustainable or an Ecotopian manner. Unlike the fictional story of Ecotopia, the United States’ way of living is vastly different.
Policies that are centered on the needs and wishes of global capital rather than on a region’s residents will leave household and community efforts as worthless gestures that only provide temporary relief from poverty. Alternative development cannot stop at the household level, but should instead... ... middle of paper ... ...is plan provides an excellent example of a program that utilized environmental education and original projects to encourage community based environmental ethics. We are currently at a turning point in time. What the world does today will ultimately determine what the future has in store. We can commit ourselves to continuously working to develop sustainability in every aspect of life, or we can continue to degrade the precious environment like we have been for so many decades.
Sustainability is important to my education and future as well as for the greater good because it sets the foundation for new generations and maintains a respectable standing for society today. Sustainability in this generation is important because without sustainability, overtime the resources on Earth will literally disappear. Once something natural expires or becomes extinct, we cannot get it back. Sustainability or the lack of it will impact the world in the future. If the people today want to positively affect generations...
In recent times, our country has made a lot of progress in many fields such as science& technology, health, education, food security etc. Progress is encouraging in some fields, but education sector is not getting the attention it deserves. Especially the underprivileged members of the society are far behind in reaping the benefits of modern education. Some may ask is it important to educate these people, when basic amenities of life food, water and shelter are also out of reach for them. Is it not necessary that the primary focus should be on providing these basic things?
