Environmental adult education for community sustainability situates local knowledge within a global pedagogy and activism of survival. Practical and theoretical considerations of environmental popular education within indigenous people's social movements are explained, and the relationship among women, the environment, and adult learning is explored. The aim of environmental adult literacy is to challenge scientific knowledge as the fundamental structure of learning, and to revalue people's experiential knowledge. A transformative ecological understanding of lifelong learning reconnects humans with nature and fosters social dialogue and action. Environmental adult education provides a rich and provocative discourse, and this volume sourcebook will be useful to readers seeking to connect social and ecological issues in their educational work in community, classroom, or social movements.
