Sustainable education

Sustainable Education

Professor Dr. Mauri Åhlberg

http://savonlinnakampus.joensuu.fi/ahlberg/index.htm


The university of joensuu

  • Mauri Åhlberg (2003):

  • I have come to a tentative conclusion that from 1950s (Donaldson & Donaldson 1958) we have understood that there are three strands in Environmental Education:

    • (1) education and learning about environment

    • (2) education and learning in environment

    • (3) education and learning for environment

  • The last one comes nearest Education for Sustainable Development.


The university of joensuu

  • Mauri Åhlberg (2003):

  • In addition to

    • ecology

    • economics

    • quality improvement

    • organisation development

    • peace education

    • population education

    • human rights education etc

  • are important aspects of Education for Sustainable Development.


  • The university of joensuu

    Mauri Åhlberg (2003):

    Education for Sustainable Development, when it is best, is integrating best theories and best practices, testing constructed new tentative theories both theoretically and empirically when it is possible.


    The university of joensuu

    Mauri Åhlberg (2003):

    'Sustainable development is development in which real long term needs of both present and future human generations are met as optimally as possible. This means that not only the basic individual biological needs, but also real economical, cultural and social needs ought to be met.'


    The university of joensuu

    • Mauri Åhlberg has developed three practical and theoretically sound new metacognitive tools:

      • Improved Concept Mapping

      • Improved Vee Heuristics

      • ARRA or Analysis of Reasoning, Rhetorics and Argumentation

    • to promote Education for Sustainable Development.


    The university of joensuu

    Professor Mauri Åhlberg

    has had some doctoral students who have used his theoretical tools like Concept Mapping and Improved Vee Heuristics


    The university of joensuu

    My share in sustainable education:

    - work education in ECE

    - new systems theory of ECE, also as a frame of reference for SE
