Product description


'A handbook of hope so needed for every educator ... a useful and inspirational tool'. (Anita Pipere Journal of Teacher Education for Sustainability, 17 (2) 2015-12-01)


'I recommend this book to all environmental educators as a ‘My Bookshelf Top 10’. It provides many hours of thoughtful and inspiring reading, as well as maps and ideas for continuing to grow as an environmental educator who meets every challenge with a sense of hope.' (Anna Jarrett Australian Journal of Environmental Education, vol. 34(2), 211–213, 2018)

We are entering a period of great transition – stormy times of uncertainty, threat and possibility, which will especially affect the lives of young people – yet guides to the future for educators and their students are woefully few. David Hicks’s new book is timely, significant, and necessarily bold – a critically important navigational guide to the learning journey we must all make to a low-carbon and very different future. It is at once a wake-up call and an inspirational ‘why, what and how’ guide to all educators striving to help young people to navigate an uncertain future. (Professor Stephen Sterling)

In this wonderful book, Hicks turns our attention to three critical global issues – climate change, peak oil and the limits to growth. The book provides creative learning plans and ideas for teaching children how to ‘know, feel, choose and act’ as citizens who can confront these challenges with courage and critical reflection. In the process Educating for Hope in Troubled Times also succeeds in providing practical support for teachers, parents and caregivers. This book should be read by anyone who worries about young citizens in troubled times; they will find Hicks offers inspiring ideas and ‘deep hope’. (Dr Bronwyn Hayward)

Once again, David Hicks provides the premier educational perspective on important global issues and trends. For over thirty years, whether the concern is sustainability, young people’s yearning for a positive future or the climate crisis, Professor Hicks speaks to the science and the art of teaching like no other. This is a must-read book for every teacher seeking to understand the defining issue of the twenty-first century and how to practise Educating for Hope in Troubled Times. (Professor John Fien)

As always, Hicks makes the most complex issues accessible for developing understandings in the classroom, as well as for professional learning. He connects the important role of education with its powerful capacity to enable students to prepare for unknown futures. More importantly, this book provides a powerful and positive message through action, to disrupt dominant messages of doom and gloom associated with climate change. (Debra Bateman)

It is more than four decades since the emergence of growing awareness about the global environmental crisis, and education systems have yet to develop robust and urgent responses. Throughout this time David Hicks has been at the cutting edge of attempts to help educators understand these issues and develop practical and hopeful strategies for working with children and young people. This book is a testament to his thinking and imagination as a teacher and hopeful traveller in search of a better world. It deserves to be read by all teachers concerned about how to help children and young people make sense of the post-carbon futures that await them. (Professor John Morgan)
