You are invited to submit an article

to a special issue of a Springer Nature journal on the theme:

Learning Sustainability: Earth, Experience, Ethics

A short CfP is here: https://e4l-jrnl.weebly.com/cfp-se-short.html
A long CfP is here: https://e4l-jrnl.weebly.com/cfp-se-long.html

The issue brings together four areas :
- sustainability of the Earth and humanity, including the SDGs & climate change,
- experience (of all kinds),
- learning, including experiential learning, and
- ethics.

We look forward to hearing from you.
Please forward this CfP to interested friends and colleagues.

This interdisciplinary article collection focuses on the intersection or nexus of several areas:  experiential learning, sustainability, the Earth and ethics.  They can be summed up in the sentence “the role of experience and ethics in learning about the Earth and about sustainability” or “how experience helps us to learn ethically about sustainability”.

It may be approached from several angles or perspectives, with the areas intersecting in several ways, including (but not limited to):

Processing experience of the Earth to turn it into learning,
Experience and ethics in learning for a sustainable Earth,
Ethical ways of learning about Earth and sustainability,
Experiential learning about sustainability,
Experience of learning sustainability ethics,
Unethical aspects of experience in or of learning about sustainability.

All aspects of learning sustainability are of interest, including the 17 SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals), oceans and climate change.

A wide range of experiential learning types is covered, such as simulations, disaster experience (eg, tsunami, earthquake), Companion Modelling, role-play, internships, adventure, field trips, games, school outings, voluntary work, project work, etc.

We welcome articles from Earth, sustainability and social scientists, from organizers of learning experience (eg, eg, educators, trainers, pedagogues) and also from people (ordinary citizens, NGO workers, journalists) who have learnt from their experience of the Earth (eg, through, floods, tsunamis, earthquakes, etc) or who have helped others learn from their experience in informal settings.
