Geography, environmental education and disaster mitigation: great expectations
Lidstone, John (1995) Geography, environmental education and disaster mitigation: great expectations. The Australian Journal of Emergency Management, 10(4), pp. 33-41.
In this paper, I will begin by making a few comments on the various agendas that I perceive to be operating in the context of geography, disaster mitigation and education, and the rationale for the inclusion of disaster-related topics in geography and social studies curricula. I will then consider various factors that impinge on how students may relate to our teaching, and say a few words on recent changes in the role of teachers and what could well be regarded as the de-professionalisation of teaching. I will then close with a couple of suggestions about the directions I think we might try to achieve our disaster mitigation goals.
