Environmental Liberation Education: Diversity, Mindfulness, and Sustainability Tools for Teachers and Students

Micaela Rubalcava

Environmental Liberation Education offers an easy-to-use, culturally informed, and student-centered teaching approach to promote academic engagement and systemic change. It includes socio-emotional tools and practices to discuss, reflect, and act for superdiverse student success and happiness in a challenging, biodiverse world.

The book presents three Transformative Tools: Diversity Circles, Multicultural Mindfulness, and Approach-in-Dimension for assessment. The Tools assist educators at all levels across disciplines to reduce bias and make sustainable decisions in daily life. They empower teachers to bring peace and academic concentration into busy classrooms through a holistic understanding of body, mind, culture, and environment. It offers a range of interactive classroom-based and professional development exercises, including mindfulness practices, transformative journal worksheets, and micro-actions. A useful self-survey equips educators with a baseline to develop diversity, mindfulness, and sustainability competencies.

Synthesizing multicultural and sustainability education through mindfulness practices, Environmental Liberation Education is an invaluable resource for educators-in-training and practicing teachers.
