Review: Teacher Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship edited by Phil Bamber

This book offers both a theoretical exploration of the issues contained within sustainable development and global citizenship (SD/GC) education while also advancing a number of ideas and practical examples for teachers (in training or in practice) on the design of their curriculum or the challenge of assessment in this area. Although rooted in the UK the very nature of the topics under discussion mean it is by no means limited to a UK audience or UK classrooms.  While the writing style is scholarly it is also accessible. I enjoyed the way that research is blended with the experience of educators from around the world, with equal respect paid to empirical and experiential evidence. This feels like a book that could be of equal use to a teacher educator, a student teacher in the process of completing their training or an experienced practitioner. Whatever level or perspective you are coming from there is something in this book that will grab your attention and provoke reflection.
