Regional issues in environmental education

  • Ben Tyson


This paper presents a panorama of the African environmental education and communication (EE&C) landscape as it relates to natural resource management by capturing a view of past and current endeavours in The Gambia, Madagascar. Namibia, and Uganda and by positing a potential vision of future activities. On-site qualitative methods were employed. Observations are discussed in terms of their relevance to public and private sector support for a) formal EE&C (curriculum, teacher training, instructional materials). b) nonformal EE&C (adults/out-of-school youth continuing education programmes, extracurricular school youth programmes. public sector extension education systems. multi-media social marketing campaigns), c) community based EE&C, and d) interpretive EE&C.
