I examine 10 speeches of Thunberg as recontextualizations of environmental ethical values that have been formulated within the context of United Nations. With this approach, guided by an ethical and educational interest grounded in moral education, and informed by conceptions of Seyla Benhabib, this paper demonstrates how students become democratic citizens appropriating the concern for future generations as a cosmopolitan claim in a resistance to exclusions from current politics. </em></p> 2019-12-27T00:00:00+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Learning and loving of nature in the Anthropocene 2020-04-09T08:17:14+02:00 Inga Bostad Dag O. Hessen <p>What does “belonging to nature” mean today and how can children and young people be inspired to experience this? What basic dilemmas and challenges arise between the requirement for critical thinking on the one side, and the experience of belonging and coexisting in nature on the other? In this article we will scrutinize the ideal of rational arguments and norms as stated in current policy documents and discuss how this best can promote curiosity and wonder, as well as a sense of relatedness and responsibility with nature that can inspire normative actions, We claim that critical thinking informed by a value-based ecology is needed to reveal the hidden curriculum of sustainable education; that is, a loss of “holistic” view in the footsteps of scientific diversification, a lack of curiosity and training of critical thinking, and a “denial of nature” characterized by a missed opportunity to raise the urgent attention towards environmental risks, that today should be a main mission in natural science education .</p> 2019-12-27T00:00:00+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Critical pedagogy 2020-04-09T08:17:01+02:00 Helen Kopnina <p>While environmentalism is often associated with different non-governmental organizations, agencies, movements, institutions, and grassroots groups, one of the least understood types of environmentalism is so-called radical activism. This article will argue that the label of radicalism or even terrorism attached to some forms of environmental activism precludes learning about the causes of environmental crises. Based on the work of Paulo Freire in critical pedagogy and eco-pedagogy, this article supports the position that learning about social and political framing of “radicalism” as well as the issues that drive this “radical” action help the development of critical thinking and ethical judgment in students. By analyzing student reflection essays on the film If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front, this article draws lessons in ecological citizenship and critical thinking.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> 2019-12-27T00:00:00+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Den livskraftige barnehagen 2020-04-09T08:17:31+02:00 Per Ingvar Haukeland Hanne Lund-Kristensen <p>Artikkelen utvikler en økopedagogisk-filosofisk tilnærming til den livskraftige barnehagen som en framtidens barnehage for en naturvennlig og bærekraftig utvikling. Empirien bygger på et aksjonsforskningsprosjekt i Klokkergaarden natur- og kultur barnehage i Drammen, Norge. Fokuset har vært på de gode møtene mellom menneske, kultur og natur knyttet til tre gjennomgående temaer som skal prege barnehage og skole de neste årene: livsmestring, demokrati og bærekraftig utvikling. Målgruppen er ledelsen og ansatte i barnehager, og målet er å konkretisere hva en livskraftig barnehage er, hvordan den vises i praksis og hvordan den kan utvikles som en aktør i en bærekraftig samfunnsutvikling.</p> 2019-12-27T00:00:00+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Preserving opportunities to live well 2020-04-09T08:16:48+02:00 Ole Andreas Kvamme <p>See introduction in the uploaded document.</p> 2019-12-27T00:00:00+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
