Tbilisi to Ahmedabad – The Journey of Environmental Education A Sourcebook
ISBN 978-81-89587-25-3; Price: Rs. 250

“Tbilisi to Ahmedabad - The Journey of Environmental Education” highlights and captures the thought, practice, and major events that shaped the journey of EE since it began its formal journey from Tbilisi thirty years ago. More importantly, this publication helps understand how the journey of EE through these years has raised the consciousness for Education for Sustainable Development. During its evolution, EE has acquired a larger mandate to champion ESD so that all disciplines play a vital role and it includes all stakeholders in its journey forward.

As background material, the publication was intended to be a comprehensive reference document useful for discussions and deliberations to be carried out in the Conference by the participants.

CEE has brought out this publication as Version 1 with an intention to invite inputs, comments and contributions from EE and ESD fraternity on aspects and events that need to be included and have not been captured in the current version. CEE is in the process of bringing out the next Version which would include ICEE proceedings as well. The authors would like to hear from all who engage in EE and ESD with inputs and comments.
