competence as the goal for Health Education and Environmental Education
Are you concerned about the prospects of the future of our Planet
and the well-being of people?
Do you see a strong civil
society as the only way for sustainable development?
Do you believe in people'
s right to a good and healthy life?
Do you think education
should help develop confident, critical and responsible citizens?
Read on to learn about
the action competence approach to environmental education and health
education and why these two areas often should be linked.
The action competence
approach to environmental education and to health education is based
on a humanistic view on education. It is far from moralistic approaches,
but is based on a trust in democracy as the fair way to develop
societies and their educational systems and practice.
You will here find the
important resources about the theory of action competence, argumentation
behind it, and different examples of projects and research initiatives
related to the action competence approach to environmental education
and health education.
