Masterarbeit aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich Sachunterricht, Heimatkunde (Grundschulpadagogik), Note: 2,0, Universitat Erfurt (Erziehungswissenschaftliche Fakultat), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Habt Ehrfurcht vor dem Baum! Er ist ein einziges grosses Wunder, und euren Vorfahren war er heilig. Die Feindschaft gegen den Baum ist ein Zeichen der Minderwertigkeit eines Volkes und von niedriger Gesinnung des Einzelnen." (Alexander von Humboldt) Das Zitat des Naturforschers und Geografen Alexander von Humboldt macht unmissverstandlich klar, dass diejenigen, die der Natur feindselig gegenuberstehen, ungebildete Menschen sind. Im Umkehrschluss lasst sich behaupten, dass hingegen gebildete Menschen sich die Natur zum Freund machen. Ebenso lasst sich interpretieren, dass die Natur den Menschen heutzutage nicht mehr heilig ist. Die Bildung des Menschen stellt nach dem Verstandnis des Zitats eine wesentliche Grosse dar. Daher ist es uberaus wichtig, dass Bildungseinrichtungen in Zeiten fortschreitender Naturentfremdung geeignete Verfahren und Methoden entwickeln mussen, um diesen Trend entgegenzuwirken. Um die Natur verstehen zu konnen, ist es hilfreich, diese zu erleben und nicht nur von Berichten oder anderen sekundaren Quellen zu zehren. Seit vielen Jahren versuchen verschiedene Institutionen, die Bewahrung der Natur durch Aufklarungsarbeit zu gewahrleisten und die Menschen zu einer engeren Naturverbundenheit zu bewegen. Ziel der Umweltbildung ist unter anderem, dass die Menschen begreifen sollen, dass sie von der Natur abhangig sind und daher ein kluger und zukunftssicherer Umgang der naturlichen Ressourcen von Noten ist. Auf der neunten Jahreskonferenz des Rates fur Nachhaltige Entwicklung, am 23.11.2009, lobte und kritisierte die deutsche Bundeskanzlerin die Fortschritte der BRD hinsichtlich der nachhaltigen Entwicklung. In ihrer Rede griff sie das Motto des Nachhaltigkeitsrates, Nachhaltigkeit in einer sich andernden Welt - Weichenstellung fur Deutschland," auf u

The ‘Key Issues in Higher Education’ series aims to raise both awareness and the standards of debate on the fundamental issues that lie at the very heart of higher education and intends to assist national and international debate. Higher Education and Sustainable Development examines whether it is actually possible to mandate, plan, monitor and evaluate the higher education sector’s route to the production of educated, innovative, independent, self-determining, critical individuals while at the same time achieving a range of wider policy goals on the side. This book examines this question in the context of a particular international policy issue – sustainable development – which is now seen across the globe as a necessary and urgent response to a range of social and environmental issues that threaten the integrity of the biosphere and human well being. The book concludes that the idea of sustainable development holds both opportunities and dangers for universities as they pursue their proper role in a free society. Illustrated by seven in-depth case studies this book considers the complex inter-relationships of a free society and sustainable development in the context of higher education, and aims to makes recommendations for realistic future development. It is essential reading for the international higher education research community, policy-makers, university managers, students and non-Governmental organizations in the development, environment and social policy sectors.

The history of the Swiss National Park, from its creation in the years before the Great War to the present, is told for the first time in this book. Unlike Yellowstone Park, which embodied close cooperation between state-supported conservation and public recreation, the Swiss park put in place an extraordinarily strong conservation program derived from a close alliance between the state and scientific research. This deliberate reinterpretation of the American idea of the national park was innovative and radical, but its consequences were not limited to Switzerland. The Swiss park became the prime example of a "scientific national park," thereby influencing the course of national parks worldwide.
