Mykolas S. Poskus, Audra Balunde & Lina Jovarauskaite
Abstract: The aim of this report was to uncover the current situation of Environmental Citizenship education in Lithuania. Qualitative data was gathered from six experts working on diverse areas of Environmental Citizenship education in the country. Data were gathered from educators (working in primary and secondary levels of education), decision-makers from NGOs and governmental organisations, and from a researcher working in the field of Environmental Citizenship education. Qualitative analysis revealed that although there are grounds to be optimistic for Environmental Citizenship education in Lithuania and the experts who participated in the survey see positive and promising trends, there is much work to be done to make it education more structured, formalised and prevalent in all levels of education in Lithuania.
