Geographical education in a changing world past experience, current trends and future challenges by John Lidstone ( )
15 editions published in 2006 in English and French and held by 496 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Schooling for sustainable development in Chinese communities experience with younger children by Michael Williams ( )
6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book focuses on the academic foundations, trends and traditions of environmental education for sustainable development principally in Chinese contexts. It highlights contexts and case studies that illuminate recent Chinese initiatives. It includes case studies of green schools and reports on recent initiatives in school-based ESD curriculum development programmes in China, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan. The book concludes with an overview chapter that points to likely future developments. The assumption underpinning the book is that experiences gained in such a major country as China will be of real interest to geographical and environmental educationists, professional educators and teachers elsewhere. Not only will it generate interest and create greater awareness but also it is hoped that these experiences will provide a platform for scholarly exchange and contribute insights on education policy and curriculum changes across Asian-Pacific communities in an increasingly globalised world
Geography and the integrated curriculum : a reader by Michael Williams ( Book )
2 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Geography, culture, and education by Rodney Gerber ( Book )
3 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book draws together for the first time expertise in cultural geography and geographical education that synthesises the main ideas in these fields to improve our cultural understanding of the world and to demonstrate how such understanding may be interwoven into the geography curricula at different levels of education. Its aim is to inject more intercultural understanding and education into people's lives. This is achieved by focusing on key aspects such as geography and culture, geography and citizenship, pedagogic implications and future directions for inter-cultural learning, understanding, and education. Through contributions from international researchers and educators, this publication demonstrates how the study of geography can assist people in different social and cultural groups to sustain their lifeworlds, and, wherever possible, improve them for future generations of citizens. Therefore, geography can be effective in the promotion of lifelong learning for groups of people who interact in both real and virtual worlds in the twenty-first century

Young people, leisure and place : cross cultural perspectives ( Book )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Young People, Leisure and Place reports on cross-cultural research into the personal geographies of young people. It explores young people's leisure and recreational pursuits, including favourite places, and.offers a tentative theory of adolescent thinking and development. The major themes explored are the impact of globalisation on young people, their reference systems and their use of private and public spaces. Evidence is presented of global, national and local dimensions of growing up in different countries in a post-modern world. The book contributes to a better understanding of issues of contemporary citizenship in a globalised world where the commodification of knowledge blurs boundaries and values. Effective citizenship in a world of time-space compression and instant access to diverse sources of information is problematic. This book provides a fascinating insight into the discerning values of young people. As they reveal their hopes and dreams within the knowledge society, the young people involved in this cross-cultural enquiry also highlight their conservatism and the traditional core values associated with their homes and families
