The Need for Adult Environmental Education

Environmental problems are a reality in today’s culture that cannot be ignored. Growing environmental troubles that the world is facing today include:

* Global warming

* Pollution

* Habitat devastation

* Overpopulation

* Waste disposal

* Diminishing resources

As you can see, education is the key to reaching environmental sustainability. In this instance, sustainability is defined as “developing a way of human living that will ensure an enduring and sufficient level of support from the earth’s resources” (Parker & Towner, 1993).
