The space is outdoors. The experience is personal and the journey can be solitary or take place in groups. Informal or formal the places visited are sites of learning. Locked in memory our experiences in the outdoors are a constant source of wonderment and food to replenish our sense of wellbeing. Our experiences in the outdoors can endure in the abstract as ideas for developing a sense of a well lived life. They can also draw us back to places and reenergise the body. Physical and emotional wellbeing collides in the unexpected events that flourish in the outdoors. Our readiness for enjoyment and personal development are subjective states which this book challenges. Traversing the landscape of the outdoors the collection of chapters contained range from the theoretical to the practical including strategies for teaching and learning that are transdisciplinary. With ideas for practitioners as well as thoughtful reading for readers of diverse ages and interests this book includes contributions from Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, United Kingdom and Canada.

The authors argue that oral history can capture communication from the land and serve as a tool for environmental problem solving.

Citizens concerned about the environment are taking up the call for a new, sustainable lifestyle. Lessons from Nature tells us what sustainability really means, and how we can achieve it. Daniel Chiras brings the concept of sustainability to life, defining it in a variety of contexts--economic, biological, political, and ethical. He also explores creative, practical ways we can apply the principles of sustainability to agriculture, industry, transportation, and other aspects of modern life. Chiras views the environmental crisis as an opportunity to redirect society away from short-term, stopgap solutions toward a new world ethic based on living in harmony with nature. He offers a fresh, bold vision of the future in which all human endeavors, from international policies to individual actions, unite us in our effort to save the planet. Lessons from Nature is foremost about solutions. It opens with a frank discussion of the scope and causes of our current crisis. Next, it examines key trends in population, agriculture, energy, biological diversity, pollution, and solid waste disposal, offering feasible, affordable suggestions to put them back on a sustainable course. Chiras offers numerous examples of positive actions on the part of individuals, corporations, and governments throughout the United States and the international community, and he sets a clear agenda for additional action.
