About this Event

It is time to celebrate!

On behalf of the University of South Australia, School of Education and the Centre of Research in Educational and Social Inclusion you are invited to the official book launch of 'Intergenerational Education for Adolescents towards Liveable Futures'

The book provides eco-socially­ oriented science and environmental educators with a diverse set of examples of how science and environmental learning for students and their co-learner teachers can be enacted in ways which contribute to their understanding of, commitment to and capabilities towards, living for a more eco-socially just and, therefore, more sustainable world. Science and environmental learning is set within a challenging framework, one that entails critical, transdisciplinary learning and acting, and values all the human and other-than-human beings sharing Earth's rich, but finite, resources.

The book is being launched by Professor Chris Daniels. Chris Daniels is the Chief Executive Officer of Cleland Wildlife Park. Previously he was Professor of Biology at the University of South Australia. Professor Daniels has been a prolific scientist and author, having written or edited 9 books and contributed to more than 170 scientific publications around topics such as natural and built environments, and reptiles, particularly lizards.

Written By:
