Eco-Thinking: Highlighting Diversity in Research


  • David Bryan Zandvliet Simon Fraser University


With the launch of the Eco-thinking journal, the goal is to describe research with/in environmental learning as a diverse and growing field of inquiry, respondent to a variety of international program developments and contexts. This research might be labeled under various genres: environmental education, global education, indigenous education, health education, eco-justice education, education for sustainable development, or environmental learning. However, what truly matters is that there are a broad range of perspectives and paradigms described that will critically inform our work as educators and as researchers. With this editor’s note and the launch of the Eco-thinking journal. It is hoped that this begins to describe a range of possibilities that exist around the varied and expanding contexts for research in environmental learning.
