“Environment, Ethics and Cultures: Design and Technology Education’s Contribution to Sustainable Global Futures” is a new book edited by Professor Kay Stables and Steve Keirl, both members of academic staff here in the Design department at Goldsmiths.
“This collection engages environmental, ethical and cultural values perspectives to show how Design and Technology (D&T) Education actively contributes to the significant educational goal of attaining sustainable global futures.
An international collection of authors representing all levels of education articulate how D&T research, curriculum theory, policy, and classroom practices can synergise to contribute positively to the education of children for sustainable global futures. The book offers a spectrum of theorised curriculum positions, political and policy analysis, and case studies of successful school practice.”
The book is available in hardcover or paperback from Sense Publishers. The publisher’s website includes a free preview of the first two chapters.
