Abstract
This collection of papers brings educational research to the central topics of environmental sustainability and economic development, and highlights the importance of education in linking, and achieving these dual objectives. It is related particularly to the role of education for sustainable development in Africa. Contributors examine the roles of indigenous knowledge and non-formal education in equipping people to sustain their own lives and livelihoods, and assert the imperative to recognise the contribution of local knowledge and culture to sustainable development - often against the trends of globalisation. The study also stresses the link between education and sustainable health; and considers how writers of school curricula and schools and colleges themselves should respond to the challenges. The book is based on a symposium organised by The Botswana Educational Research Association.
