Sustainable leadership and environmental education at the Centre for Environmental Education, South China Normal University

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapters

Abstract

The paper aims to analyze and evaluate the role of the Centre for Environmental Education, hosted by the School of Chemistry and Environment of the South China Normal University, the People’s Republic of China. Since its establishment in May 2005, the Centre was committed to the promotion of environmental consciousness through the model of sustainability leadership. Sustainability leadership in the wider context aims at enhancing appreciation of the interconnectedness of systems, thinking globally and towards the future, and transforming current unsustainable life-styles. Guided by these principles, the Centre has played a leadership role in promoting sustainability within the university and the wider community as a whole. Regionally, through a partnership agreement, it is also connected to a major green non-governmental organization (GNGO) in Hong Kong, Green Power to conduct cross-border community action projects and research related to environmental education. This cross-border collaboration was prompted by the change in political context between Hong Kong and China when the latter was reverted back to Chinese rule in 1997.
