As mentioned above, one of the main problems we are facing today is the environmental crisis. “Ecoliteracy involves a new kind of “systemic” thinking—thinking in terms of relationships, connectedness, and context.
Teaching ecoliteracy is the great challenge for education in the twenty-first century. It is an enterprise that transcends all our differences of race, culture, or class. The Earth is our common home, and creating a sustainable world for our children and for future generations is our common task.” (Capra, 2015:5).
“Schools teach—whether they are conscious of it or not—by how they make community decisions, invest their resources, and provision themselves with food, energy, materials, shelter, transport, and water and that learning is simultaneously social, emotional, cognitive, and ethical.” (Caprah, 2015)
