  • Towards an Ecology of Environmental Education:Feedback Loops, EE, and Resilience World Environmental Education Congress, Montreal May 2009

  • Feedbacks: Virtuous
    4. Ecosystem services
    3. Natural capital
    5. Social capital
    “VIRTUOUS”
    Feedback “primes” cycle to repeat and expand
    2. Civic ecology education
    1. Civic ecology practice
  • Feedbacks: Vicious
    Feedback “primes” cycle to repeat and expand
    5. Depletion of social capital
    1. Urban community
    “VICIOUS”
    4. Lack of ecosystems services
    2. Highway built
    3. Natural capital eroded
  • Virtuous and Vicious Cycles Can be Resilient
    Desired system
    Virtuous cycle
    Undesired system
    Vicious cycle
  • How can EE Help
    in Managing a System
    for a Desirable Resilient State?
  • Virtuous and Vicious Cycles Can be Resilient
    Desired system
    Virtuous cycle
    Undesired system
    Vicious cycle
  • Bifurcation Zones and Resilient Cycles
    Vicious Cycle
    Bifurcation Zone
    Virtuous Cycle
  • EE, Bifurcation Zone, and Resilience
    Can EE “shore up” the ridge and prevent the “marble” from crossing into the vicious state?
  • EE, Bifurcation Zone, and Resilience
    Can EE “diminish” the ridge and help the “marble” cross from the vicious into the virtuous state?
  • Feedback Loop between Social and Ecological Systems
    Pickett et al, LTER
  • EE
    EE
    EE Role in Feedback Loop?
  • Conclusions
    • EE may become part of feedback loops in social-ecological systems.
    • An “ecology of EE” explains how EE relates to other parts of the social-ecological system.
    • An “ecology of EE” helps us:
    • to theorize the role of EE in fostering desirable resilience.
    • eventually to better manage social-ecological systems for resilience.
  • Take-Home Message
    • Resilience: capacity of system to respond to and to grow from disturbance.
    • Civic ecology practices can help confer resilience.
    • EE can be situated in and enhance civic ecology practices.
    • Thus, EE may help confer resilience.
