When preparing your papers for the 6th JoLii Conference, we recommend to check the open access Sustainability journal publications. Like this one by Giulia Sonetti et al.: “Education for Sustainability in Practice: A Review of Current Strategies within Italian Universities”. The selected Conference papers’ authors will also be invited to contribute to a Special issue in this journal.
The Pedagogy of Transition: Educating for the Future We Want
Following the UNESCO World Conference on Education for Sustainable Development, many educators are asking a key question: are we educating for the world we want?
Despite many valuable on-the-ground initiatives, the answer is a clear “no” in the wide-ranging forum The Pedagogy of Transition: Educating for the Future We Want, published today by the Great Transition Initiative (GTI).
The forum contributes to growing international debate on the purposes and role of education by offering a powerful and challenging critique of conventional assumptions
about education and learning. More importantly, it posits inspiring alternative visions and practicable steps to transformative change that point the way forward.
The Great Transition Initiative, founded in 2003, is an online forum of ideas and an international network for the critical exploration of concepts, strategies, and visions for a transition to a future of enriched lives, human solidarity, and a resilient biosphere.
