Urban Environmental Education: Preliminary Literature Review (Kudryavtsev, Krasny, 2012)

Resource Category:

This preliminary report is part of the future manuscript “Urban Environmental Education Framework” to be submitted to an education journal. The report includes an overview of the literature on urban environmental education, and definitions of urban environmental education offered by educators. We have focused on the academic literature and have attempted to capture the very beginnings of a rich and growing urban environmental education tradition.
