EDUC-5320: Multicultural Environmental Education Strategies and Tools

Multicultural Environmental Education (MCEE) is an approach to environmental learning and community level engagement that draws on four related fields of research, practice and action: multicultural education, critical pedagogy, environmental justice, and environmental education. The fundamental objective of Multicultural Environmental Education as a field, is to connect environmental learning to the lived cultural lives of students, families and communities, and by so doing, enhance the relevance of educational experience, support student achievement and activate the power of positive environmental and social change. As importantly, MCEE provides a means of awareness and understanding for educators of the power dynamics of the teacher-learner-school (or program) relationship with the goal of ‘democratizing’ learning and the educational environment through action.
