The papers presented at the World symposium on Lifelong Learning and Sustainable Development, organised last March by the Centre for Environmental Education and Research in collaboration with other academic entities, have now been compiled and published under the title ‘Handbook of Lifelong Learning and Sustainable Development’. The publication is edited by Walter Leal Filho, Mark Mifsud and Paul Pace. This publication is yet another volume in the award-winning “World Sustainability Series”, published by Springer, which since its creation in 2015 has become the world’s leading book series on sustainable development.
The ‘Handbook of Lifelong Learning and Sustainable Development’ brings together academics from around the world presenting and discussing the latest research in relation to lifelong learning and education for sustainable development. The Handbook of Lifelong Learning and Sustainable Development explores the role that lifelong learning, adult education and community-based education initiatives play in themes of sustainable development. The papers explore such diverse themes as poverty alleviation through community participation, social media use, sustainable aesthetics in architecture and sustainability initiatives at community level.
