PERSONAL COVENANT ON ECOLOGY IN EDUCATION

PERSONAL COVENANT ON ECOLOGY IN EDUCATION


I acknowledge that ecology is equated with the natural environment.

I acknowledge that an ecological approach to education implies adopting an approach that is aware of both the physical and natural environment, as well as the social and cultural environments.

I acknowledge that one goal of education is to develop an understanding of how all life (and existence) is interdependent.

I acknowledge that ecological consciousness involves a change in perception, a change in one’s way of thinking and a change in one’s behavior;

I pledge myself to the welfare of the educational community and the people, in general, by:

1) Becoming better informed of the subject matter;

2) Introducing change in curricula and teaching methodologies that would set out an ecological
dimension;

3) Working to support movements towards ecological education;

4) Becoming a strong advocate for education moving toward an enhanced sense of ecological
consciousness;
