  • Rolf Jucker: Do We Know What We Are Doing? Reflections on Learning,
    Knowledge, Economics, Community and Sustainability. Newcastle Upon Tyne: Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2014. ISBN-13: 978-1-4438-6685-9; ISBN-10: 1-4438-6685-7This is my personal analysis of the UN Decade of ESD. It is an attempt
    to truly take seriously a systemic approach and understanding of the
    state we are in. I then try to assess what this means for education. In
    my view this leads to a paradigm shift and radical reconceptualisation
    of how we need to understand and practice learning. Arjen Wals has aptly
    called this hybrid social learning.

Our Common Illiteracy takes seriously the international consensus that Education for Sustainability (EfS) is crucial to the survival of humankind. It establishes the principles of a sustainable society and performs a rigorous assessment of the reasons for our unsustainable present. Only on that foundation, it is argued, can the role of education in the transition to a sustainable society be meaningfully assessed. Such an approach is by necessity complex, transdisciplinary and broad. It has to acknowledge the limited significance of education within contemporary society, along with other ‘educators’ such as the media, the economy and the shadow curriculum of institutional practice. The book ends with 28 practical strategies to foster Education for Sustainability.
