This chapter examines how environmental education—including school and public programs developed by universities and government agencies as well as initiatives that emerge from the efforts of grassroots organizations—can help in the response to and preparation for climate change and related disasters. More specifically, it considers how we can hold true to our foundational values of enhancing the environment, including efforts to mitigate climate change, while addressing the reality that climate change has already irreversibly changed our environment and that we need to adapt and transform. The chapter looks at examples of formal school curricula, engineered infrastructure development, and public outreach in Singapore and through an exploratory “three Rs” (reclamation, resilience, regeneration) approach to climate-responsive environmental and sustainability education in the United States.

Keywords:   environmental education, climate change, formal school curricula, engineered infrastructure development, public outreach, Singapore, reclamation, resilience, regeneration, sustainability
