Toward a Trans-Local Knowledge of Water for the Next Generation

Abstract

The challenge of teaching knowledge about global water issues, such as climate change,desertification, and other looming crises, is rooted in the complex nature of the globalenvironment. “Systems thinking” is being drawn upon as an educational objective insome jurisdictions, but a deeper understanding of systems is a secondary-level objective,while the early formation of environmental attitudes at the elementary level is identifiedas an important sustainability goal. Such attitudes might be facilitated by nurturingyoung people’s empathy for groups of people suffering in far-away locations from problemswith sanitation, water conflict, climate change, and other water-related issues.
