Abstract

In the closing chapter, “Environmental sustainability and education: the case of Croatia and Slovenia”, Mladen Domazet and Branko Ančić take a qualitative look at calls for change in educational content in line with the calls for social change in sustainability-oriented practices. The authors present an overview of studies of educational content related to environmental component of sustainability education in Croatia and Slovenia’s compulsory education. They consider this component as a reflection on the development, prosperity and educational attainment of the two neighbouring countries’ populations. The relevance of educational content in the context of this volume rests on the premise that education is an expression of a society’s dominant choices ; that a politics of nature and development is inscribed in the educational projects notionally geared towards sustainability.
