Chapter 16: Education for Environmental Citizenship in NORWAY
Finn Arne Jørgensen, Lihong Huang & Eli Melby
Abstract: This chapter summarises and discusses the knowledge and experience on Education for Environmental Citizenship in Norway, based on the analysis of nine responses to a standardised set of SWOT survey questions. The nine Norwegian respondents include two academic researchers on environmental education, three policy makers from the Norwegian Ministry of Education, one decision maker from an NGO working in the field of environmental issues, one decision maker from an education professional society, one primary school teacher, and one secondary school teacher. The questions (including the survey introduction text) were translated into the Norwegian language and sent to the respondents beforehand. Some responses were obtained through telephone interviews, the rest through a Google Documents form.
