In the decades since the Stockholm Conference in 1972, environmental education has emerged as a significant component of education virtually everywhere in the world. It has, for the most part, flourished at all levels of education. There are magazines and journals such as Sustainability in Higher Education, professional associations, and regular conferences. It is not difficult to imagine all of this as the start of something like an ecological enlightenment emerging in the decades or centuries ahead. But no such thing is certain. If education is to be midwife to a deeper, broader, and sustainable transformation, it will have to surmount serious challenges.
