What is Environmental Education?
 
02:01
This video goes through definitions for Environmental Education. Environmental Education has many definitions depending on the source. It is clear that it has elements of outdoor education, outdoor play, outdoor recreation, conservation, and may include learning about: the environment, nature, natural resources, wildlife,animals, plants, fish, outdoor recreation, and the global environment. This type of experiential learning is also linked to good teaching, parenting, family, and family relationships. Parents and teachers are taking more interest in using outdoor activities in nature to teach about conservation and the environment. Outdoor activities spent exploring the environment helps to build a better symbiotic relationship between nature and humans. Children and adults learn a great deal from their outdoor adventures. Each outdoor adventure helps to build critical thinking skills and leads to healthy lifestyles and scientific discovery. There are numerous outdoor jobs and opportunities for entrepreneurs who have an interest in environmental education. Wildlife refuges, wildlife reserves, and wildlife preserves can be turned into outdoor classrooms. There is a great deal to learn from nature methods. Natural curiosity sparks interest in natural science and learning such as biological science, earth science, nature materials, nature biotechnology, nature immunology, nature physics, nature nanotechnology, scientific exploration, and scientific breakthroughs. The travel and tourism industry also can benefit from environmental education. Ecotourism, nature tourism, zoo travel, and nature tour, are enourmous fast growing industries. There is a great number of people that will travel to see exotic animals, endangered animals, birds, mammals, fish and migrations. People want to learn more about wildlife and teach their children. There is also a growing interest in nature pictures and nature photography

Community based environmental education in Mongolia
 
24:28
Mrs Tungalagtuya Khuukhenduu Community-based environmental education in Mongolia Over the past few decades, Mongolia's wildlife and cultural resources have declined in the face of massive natural and cultural resource extraction activities, inadequate management, poor conservation education resources and programming, and very minimal law enforcement. Traditionally, people in Mongolia hold conservation and environmental knowledge, yet they lack the means to effectively manage and protect their natural resources. Little natural or cultural resources management currently occurs in Mongolia outside of federally managed protected areas. In recent years there has been a shift in the way Mongolians view their land and a need to conserve natural resources, restore traditional customs and apply community cooperative management. Nomadic Nature Conservation, a Mongolian NGO, grew out of the recognition of a conservation need among communities throughout Mongolia. The organization brings ecological education to Mongolia's rural schools and communities through the Nomadic Nature Trunk Program. The trunk program is an innovative mobile educational program that brings activity-based instruction in natural sciences and the environmental conservation to Mongolian schools and indigenous communities, building the capacity of these communities to engage in wildlife conservation. In an ever-changing landscape in rural Mongolia, Nomadic Nature Conservation works to cultivate a culture of conservation-minded Mongolians that will create a better place in which to live for future generations.

Kudryavtsev and Krasny, Urban Environmental Education
 
57:49
Urban Environmental Education Review (Cornell University Press, 2017) presents perspectives from environmental educators around the world to address the question: How can environmental education contribute to urban sustainability? The book debunks common assumptions that cities are ecologically barren, and that people who live in cities don’t care about nature or a healthy environment. It presents novel educational approaches that can help practicing environmental educators, urban planners, and other environmental leaders achieve their goals to educate youth, build sustainable communities and improve the natural environments in cities. In a Chats in the Stacks book talk at Mann Library in March 2018, co-editors Alex Kudryavtsev and Marianne Krasny lead a discussion that touches on these insights to highlight how learning opportunities in environmental stewardship foster individual and community well-being in cities in ways that both protect the environment and improve the quality of everyday life. Dr. Kudryavtsev is an Extension Associate in the Department of Natural Resources at Cornell where he is developing courses, conducting research and producing publications on environmental education, with focus on environmental psychology, community-based stewardship, and engaging urban youth in environmental awareness building and action. Cornell Professor of Natural Resources Marianne Krasny directs the the Civic Ecology Lab at Cornell and has developed a number of popular online courses about environmental education and civic ecology. Widely published and repeatedly recognized for her contributions in support of public engagement with issues of environmental and community resilience, in 2018 Dr. Krasny was named a Fellow with the Royal Swedish Academy of Agriculture and Forestry.
