With global environmental changes locked into our future, what we teach must evolve. All education will need to be environmental education, teaching students to be ecoliterate, deep-thinking, and deeply moral leaders, ready to face unprecedented challenges. EarthEd explores traditional areas of environmental education such as nature-based learning and systems thinking, as well as new essential topics including social-emotional learning and the importance of play. This latest edition of State of the World examines how, by rethinking education, people worldwide can better adapt to a rapidly changing planet. ; Back cover." ;
