Subject: [Green_St] env. ed. and multiculturality
I am a Greek Fulbright scholar (teaching env. ed. at the Univ. of the
Aegean) who works off Second Nature in Boston for the summer. My Turkish
colleague, Gunay Kocasoy, and I are researching env. education or
education for sustainability projects / activities that also deal with
multiculturality or promote cross cultural understanding and cooperation.
The aim of the research is to investigate the character and characteristics
of these programs, their methods, their theoretical underpinnings, their
difficulties, ways of dealing with them, evaluation, outcomes, successes,
The ultimate aim is to create an env. ed. program that will be implemented
in both Greece and Turkey. Thus, the lessons we will learn from the
aforementioned research will be very useful for us.
If you have a EE program which also deals with multicultural issues, we
would appreciate initial information (including any written materials) about
In addition, would you know of other people / experts (within or outside
your institution) and/or env. ed. projects with multicultural dimensions -
cross-cultural understanding and cooperation, that would be useful for us to
contact (please, if possible, with contact information).
Thanking you in advance ,
