Environmental Education in Southwest China and Seattle

  • Join Seattle University's Dr. Rob Efird for this lecture and discussion:

    China and the United States are the world's two largest contributors to climate change, and the choices of their citizens will likely prove decisive in determining the planet's environmental future. Both nations have policies to promote environmental education as a means of cultivating environmental stewardship, but how are these policies being implemented? How does one promote sustainable behavior through education in the first place? In this work-in-progress talk, I present some initial findings from my ongoing fieldwork in China's southwestern province of Yunnan, as well as my experiments with environmental education here in Seattle.
