For the Total Environment: Bill Stapp's Contribution to Environmental Education

  • Annette Gough (a1)

Abstract

Bill Stapp passed away in May 2001, thirty one years after his first influential visit to Australia. Although many among the current generation of younger environmental educators might not know his name they are very likely to be working within a framework for environmental education that he worked hard to establish. This paper discusses his contribution from a socially critical standpoint and within the context of the relationship between formal education and informal settings that underpinned his work. In writing this paper I draw on his writings, commentaries on his work, personal knowledge and an in-depth interview I conducted with him in 1991.
