Chapter 10: SWOT Analysis of Education for Environmental Citizenship – Short HUNGARIAN report
Adrienne Csizmady, Imre Kovách & Boldizsár Megyesi
Abstract: Environmental education and citizenship studies are not a focus of Hungarian primary and secondary education. As a consequence, Education for Environmental Citizenship is an almost unknown and neglected topic. In our report we present its main strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats, analysing the relevant policy documents and structured interviews conducted among experts, decision-makers, scientists and practitioners. The picture is like a bottle, half empty for the pessimists or half full for the optimist, and Education for Environmental Citizenship could be linked to both science studies and history. The future will show whether experts and practitioners are able to build up these links.
