This book includes selected papers presented at the 10th World Environmental Education Congress held in Bangkok, Thailand. The works include a globally diverse range of authors and perspectives on environmental and sustainability topics. All submissions went through a second round of peer review.
On the one hand, local knowledge (based on direct relationship with places, experience, heritage inherited from generation to generation) offers contextualized solutions, sense of belonging, emotional involvement, participation opportunities and concrete action.
On the other hand, humans are linked by a common destiny, they are now connected by thousand powerful channels of communication and are mutually interconnected by the effects of everything that happens on the globe. Continuous exchanges of materials and information are the hallmark of the phase that humanity has come to. More than ever, the classic statement of environmental thought that every local thing is global and vice versa is true.
This book explores environmental issues, to raise awareness and to be responsible for environmental care in society. In addition, people sharing knowledge and academic experiences will bring solutions concerning global change and climate change for the present and future.
