The role of values in environmental education

Centre researcher Cecilia Lundholm gives an introduction to ethical and normative reasoning, particularly with regards to climate change.

In this whiteboard seminar, Cecilia Lundholm gives an introduction to the intricate issue of values and what role they (should) play when individuals discuss solutions to environmental degradation and climate change in particular.

There is a growing interest in addressing moral aspects of socio-scientific issues. This video explains the role of individual values and students' interpretations of climate change and how to deal with it.

Cecilia Lundholms' research interest concerns communication and learning about environmental and sustainability issues. In particular, the interest focuses on students' conceptions and learning about nature, society and the individual and the relationship between these.

In her work, Lundholm highlights the need for students to better understand society and the interdependent relations between them as invididuals, government and business and how collaborative and mutual support between these is necessary in order to respond to environmental challanges.

She argues that environmental education is largely missing the interrelated issues of ecosystem services and human-well being. A more a more multidisciplinary approach is needed.
