The environmental crisis is one of three major crises to human’s development. But there are a series of issues in present for environmental law education of college students, such as this course, which are low offered and lack of sustainability, colleges and universities do not pay enough attention to it. They are weak in the relevant basic theory and they are lack of vocational training and so on. In order to solve the above problems, we can try to do the “two combinations”. The first is the combination vocational training and basic knowledge and the second is combining vocational training in the classroom with outside of the classroom in environmental law.

Greening the Judiciary
M Kidd
Potchefstroom Electronic Law Journal/Potchefstroomse Elektroniese Regsblad , 2006,
Abstract: Much of South Africa’s environmental law is relatively new. Most of South Africa’s judges received their formal legal educations before promulgation of the major part of our environmental law and almost certainly before environmental law was taught at universities. In recent years, there have been increasing instances of cases involving environmental matters coming to the courts. How are judges performing in these cases? It would appear that the judges’ performance is rather 'chequered' in environmental cases, which suggests that the judiciary needs to become more attuned to environmental law. I call this process, for purposes of this note, ‘greening the judiciary’. What I mean by this is not that judges must decide all environmental cases in a way that favours the environment, but that they must correctly consider, interpret and apply the relevant environmental law, and give environmental considerations appropriate deliberation. This note aims to identify, in admittedly somewhat general terms, the current state of environmental decision-making by judges and to suggest what needs to happen for such decisions to be improved.

Abstract: in this paper we present an experience related to environmental education that was accomplished with high school students. the educational material based on the legal process, was offered to high school students in a short term course in which the content was about the social and environmental impacts caused by the creation of the water reservoir at the três irm?os hydroelectric power plant , that was built in the tietê river, in the state of s?o paulo, in brazil. the main focus of the research was to analyze the potential of this case of environmental rights in order to support the educational practice within environmental education. the short term course was based on dialogued in the classes, working groups and dramatizations. by the end of the activities interviews were made with the students aiming to comprehend the meanings given by them of the whole educational experience. the analysis of these interviews, by a phenomenological approach, made it possible to construct and to discuss some perspectives that seemed potentially useful in exploring environmental rights at the basic school level.

Has the Status of “Maximum Sustainable Yield” Become an International Customary Rule?  [PDF]
Rachel Alberstadt
Beijing Law Review (BLR) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/blr.2014.54025
Abstract: The concept of maximum sustainable yield has emerged as a popularly accepted concept for the benefit of the environment, yet the practical implementation of this concept and the dubious acceptance by fisherman of its lawfulness provides the CORE discussion of this article. Customary law exists as a two pillared system depending both on an element of practice in addition to the belief that the behavior in question is lawfully mandated. As such, for customary status to apply to maximum sustainable yield, this requires both pillars. This article therefore evaluates the application of the customary status to maximum sustainable yield and in doing so, demonstrates that maximum sustainable yield is itself an implementation of the greater notion of sustainable development as a whole.
Economic Natural Laws and Economics  [PDF]

Modern Economy (ME) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/me.2015.61002
Abstract: Human activity causes extensive destruction to nature. However, nature is necessary to us; continuing to damage it regardless of consequence is unwise. Microeconomic and macroeconomic natural laws were introduced by [1], but the global economy is not operating in compliance with the microeconomic natural law. If ignorance of the importance and feasibility of the microeconomic natural law is the reason for the global economy to not adhere to it, then more explanations must be provided. The current mainstream school of economics has already resolved the threat of resource scarcity; therefore, reinforcing the shortage of this school is necessary to undertake the new mission of addressing the threat of environmental destruction.
Environment, Health, & Nursing Practice  [PDF]

Creative Education (CE) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2011.23045
Abstract: The purpose of this study was to explore the connection nurses see between the environment and health concerns of their patients. The study surveyed registered nurses (RNs) in a western state to determine whether they evaluated themselves as knowledgeable about environmental health (EH) hazards and if they felt prepared by their nursing curriculum to share this information with their patients. The study replicates a survey of Wisconsin nurses concerning issues related to EH knowledge among RNs in Idaho. Data from 170 respondents to a mailed survey indicated that although nurses agreed that they should be knowledgeable about EH hazards, few were adequately prepared. Overall, many nurses felt unprepared from their nursing curricula to address EH issues in the field. Corrective measures are discussed.
Environmental Education (EE) and Experiential Education:A Promising “Marriage” for Greek Pre-School Teachers  [PDF]
Alexandros Georgopoulos, Maria Birbili, Anastasia Dimitriou
Creative Education (CE) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2011.22016
Abstract: Kindergarten teachers tend to combine EE and experiential education in their every day practice as a matter of course. The majority perceive EE as related to sensory awareness and exploration and the concomitant will to act in a pro-environmental direction. They deal with and elaborate their pupils experiences in a way that is remi- niscent of Colb’s learning cycle. It is not clear from the interviews whether they effectively facilitate their child- ren’s reflection upon the acquired experience, although there is some evidence that they accompany and assist their pupils in associating their new knowledge to that previously acquired, integrating it into new wholes and appropriating it. They do not give any information about the elaboration of their pupils emotions developed through the experiential educational approaches. They claim that when EE and experiential education are blended together then this can generate active citizens of the future.

Abstract: The recent urbanization and increasing distance between children and nature have had negative impact both in learning and in the maintenance of healthy life in the natural environment. The development and application of transdisciplinary teaching practices in sciences and visual arts afford to materialize highly relevant strategies in environmental education. Based on these principles, the present study analyzed the possible contributions of transdisciplinary efforts to children’s drawings of the environment they live in. Fifteen elementary school children were requested to draw 1) what they remembered of the school backyard; 2) what they remembered of the “nature” in the school backyard; and 3) what they saw during a visit to the backyard. In addition, semi-structured interviews were carried out to collect the children’s impressions of their drawings. The results indicate that, in addition to the grass growing in the area, playground features and other toys were consistently represented in drawings, indicating that the backyard is strongly correlated with students’ leisure and game activities. When prompted to draw nature elements, trees and some arthropods were drawn, such as insect larvae and bees. For such reasons, it is necessary to improve the students’ ties with the natural environment looking for more significant educational practices in relation to the nature in the surroundings where they inhabit.
