This seventh volume in the SAGE Series on Green Society explores the environmental movement's proliferation in the field of education, from elementary school classroom efforts to the university curriculum to building sustainable campuses. Focusing on the critical role of education in building a sustainable future, approximately 150 signed entries, written by scholars and experts in a variety of disciplines, examine school and college courses in green education, the structures of educational institutions, the challenges of reducing their ecological footprint, administrative policies, green campus organizations, and student and faculty participation. Pedagogical elements in the front- and back-matter include a Reader's Guide, a Glossary of relevant terms, a Resource Guide to further readings, an Appendix of primary documents, and a thorough Index, all of which comprise an outstanding reference for academic and public libraries presented in both pring and electronic formats to enhance accessibility.
