Rosemary Papa

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The economic, political, and cultural elements that comprise global policies and their effect on individuals, and the greater society of nation/states is the contextual setting to this chapter and the role all educators should acknowledge: the ethical and moral values embedded in today’s classrooms especially in teaching sustainable practices. This chapter examines sustainability, the role of educators in the classrooms, and within their local communities. Community involvement action when bridged to moral valued actions that educators teach and model, as extension of the family, can serve as the bridge for all citizens of planet earth to move to the ethically valued actions that will sustain earth and thereby, the well-being of all future generations.
