Written from an interdisciplinary perspective, this exciting book covers a wide range of topics on education and sustainable development within the context of a competitive 21st Century global arena that demands innovation, creativity, adaptive skills, multiple literacies, environmental stewardship and responsibility. It does so by examining and then, providing practical strategies for addressing the challenges in education in Nigeria (and Africa) while simultaneously emphasizing the interrelationship between education, society and sustainable development. Importantly, the theme of inclusive and environmentally responsive socio-economic development cuts across all nine chapters of the book. Education and Sustainable Development in 21st Century Nigeria provides a valuable tool for educational professionals, researchers, development and environmental practitioners, policymakers and students in Nigeria, Africa and elsewhere.
