Abstract

Education about 'the environment' played a vital role in the survival of the human species for many millennia. In gatherer-hunter societies, part of being a member of the society was learning about weather, climate, plants, animals, geography and other aspects of nature. Part of this learning was obtained by first-hand experience and part through stories, instruction, rituals and other intimate parts of the culture.
