A Lecture by

Gene
Hargrove

University of North Texas

 On Environmental
Value Education
 
Friday, February 28, 2003
3:00 p.m. in
EESAT 130


Most environmental laws contain lists of values that are supposed to be promoted in order to inhibit economic development without adequate environmental concern. Focusing on these values and teaching them from a traditional or heritage perspective could eliminate possible charges by political conservatives and the religious right that teachers are indoctrinating students into their own value systems or teaching value relativity. This approach can be called environmental citizenship (paralleling stewardship) and could provide a basis for promoting the values in our laws as originally intended, rather than by substituting inappropriate economic values.

The lecture is free and open to the public.
