Urban Environmental Education Review

This chapter explores the relationship between urban environmental education programs and urban environmental governance in light of the “deliberative turn”—a shift away from “government” toward “governance,” including in urban planning and policy making, and the acceptance of stakeholder participation and dialogue as crucial elements in governance related to complex urban issues. The deliberative turn emphasizes the importance of public participation, attention to both purposive and inadvertent forms of exclusion, the value of dialogue among stakeholders, and the creation of an environment in which the distorting effects of power are diminished. The chapter examines “wicked” urban sustainability issues that call for collaborative governance based on deliberation and argues that urban environmental literacy should include an understanding of governance and skills related to productive deliberation. It also explains how an understanding of mechanisms for the development of trust can enhance the potential for constructive deliberation and collaborative governance.
