Education 40.4

Published: October 2014

Environmental education teaches how to be in the world, how to connect and partner with others to achieve a goal, how to synthesize disparate world views and consider innovative possibilities as solutions.

A\J's 2014 Education issue digs into what it means to get an environmental education – plus where to get one, what you can do with it, and why everyone should have one.

In this issue:

  • An inspiring feature essay by Natasha Milijasevic on the unique value of an environmental education.
  • Jane Goodall on why today's grads make great leaders.
  • Grad profiles: what real alumni are doing with Canadian environmental degrees.
  • Our annual guide to environmental post-secondary programs across the country.
  • How we'll get past the nuclear era's fiscal meltdown. 
  • A creative Vancouverite's success with at-home hydroponics.
  • How-to: A DIY solar water heater.
  • Methane-bleeding fracking wells.
  • A Q&A with racecar driver Leilani Münter.
