Environmental Learning Approaches that Promotes Positive Action in Learners

  • Lillian Chipatu The University of Zambia


This article focuses on environmental learning approaches that promotes positive action. It uses desk research and document analysis to capture and understand environmental learning and environmental learning approaches that promote positive action. There was an agreement in the literature that learning was a complicated process and thus different definitions of it. It was revealed in this desk research that people going to national parks and other natural wonders for relaxation, pleasure or even when persons join an environmental organization to support policy efforts of that organization constitutes environmental learning. However, the researcher argues that environmental learning is learning about, for and in the environment. Further, there was consensus in the literature that not all learning approaches are appropriate for environmental learning. The researcher posts that appropriate environmental learning approaches should ultimately lead to positive actions.
