Ohlmeier,Brunold's Politische Bildung für nachhaltige Entwicklung: Eine PDF

By Ohlmeier,Brunold

Im Rahmen einer weltweit angelegten Expertenbefragung und bezogen auf die von der UNESCO etablierten fünf Weltregionen hat diese Studie die Konzepte einer Bildung für nachhaltige Entwicklung aus politikdidaktischer Perspektive sowie deren praktische Umsetzung vor dem Hintergrund von länderspezifischen Bildungsinstitutionen analysiert. Es wird die Frage beantwortet, inwieweit der Dekadenprozess auf internationaler und nationalstaatlicher Ebene sowie in zivilgesellschaftlichen Kontexten als bildungspolitisches Demokratisierungsprojekt im Sinne einer „Global- und strong Governance“ verstanden werden kann. Die Autoren kommen u.a. zu dem Ergebnis, dass erst die dauerhafte Etablierung demokratischer Bildungsstrukturen, die gleichermaßen aus staatlich unterstützten Top-down- und zivilgesellschaftlich fundierten Bottom-up-Prozessen erwachsen müssen, auf längere Sicht erwarten lassen, dass sich die Leitideen einer nachhaltigen Entwicklung im Handeln von Regierungen und Bürgern widerspiegeln.
