Description/Abstract

Community education is about creating opportunities for community members - individuals, schools, businesses and public and private organisations - to become partners in addressing community needs. Much of the literatuure about community education indicates that educational participation among children and adults is strongly conected with the individual's integration into community life (McGivney, 1993).
This article outlines the findings of a WWF-UK funded community project to promote education for sustainable development (ESD), through collaboration between Soutrhampton schools and the local community.
