Summary "Young Children and the Environment tackles one of the biggest contemporary issues of our times - the changing environment - and demonstrates how early education can contribute to sustainable living. An essential text for students in early childhood education and a practical resource for child care practitioners and primary school teachers, it is designed to promote education for sustainability from birth to 8 years. The text refers to national and international initiatives such as ʻSustainable Schoolsʾ, ʻChild Friendly Citiesʾ, and ʻHealth Promoting Schoolsʾ and explores their existing and potential links with early childhood education. Groundbreaking content draws on recent literature in the areas of organisational, educational and cultural change and environmental sustainability. Early childhood case studies and vignettes exemplify leadership in practice, and ʻProvocationsʾ are integrated throughout to inspire new ways of thinking about the environment, the wider world, young children and the transformative power of early education."--Publisher description
