"This collection, by leading practitioners, critics, and researchers, is a valuable educational tool. It has the potential to advance significantly the movement towards education for sustainability." (Hans van Ginkel, President, International Association of Universities and Rector of the United Nations University, Tokyo, Japan) "This is a valuable book; it makes a significant and unique contribution to the burgeoning field of sustainable development. It is a fresh breeze with its stories of real academics working to make a difference in their courses, faculties, and universities." (Dr. Karen Malone, Associate Professor, Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and Australian Director of UNESCO's Growing Up in Cities Project) "Issues of sustainability pose a Copernican level challenge to educators and educational institutions everywhere. Professors Corcoran and Wals have assembled an exemplary group of scholars and change agents to survey the field and the results are both useful and exciting. Strongly recommended for educators, administrators, and all interested in the transition to a world better than that in prospect." (David W. Orr, Professor and Chair of the Environmental Studies, Oberlin College, USA)
