3 personal ideas that might make a better world…
What values or attitudes are needed to achieve these ideas?
SOME RECENT IDEAS
In these days, we can realize various global issues; however, one of the most notable is related to the environment, which has become a most popular area since the last three decades.
Although the environmental consciousness results from the interaction between the society and family, formal education given in this process is also important in increasing the environmental consciousness of the society.
Environmental Education goes beyond providing students with simple information about environmental issues.
A variety of environmental problems now affect our entire world. As globalization continues and the Earth's natural processes transform local problems into international issues, few societies are being left untouched by major environmental problems.
MISSION OF EDUCATION
It is stated that if the students do not have the proper knowledge and understanding of causes and effects of these environmental issues, it will be very hard for them to make correct decisions in the future to reduce and control these problems.
