Nowadays, environmental change directly influences human activities as it can cause the disturbance or problems directly to the quality of life and living conditions of human. Also, it has the effect indirectly in the mean of natural disasters. Accordingly, the environmental movement efforts to configure policies, measures and implementation plans in order to address an increasing number of today’s environmental issues as well as nature conservation and repairing and preventing environmental degradation.
Focusing on Environmental education, it refers to a significant approach for sustainable development of environment that requires technology as a medium for effective transfer of knowledge to learners or human beings. In other words, human beings, including individuals, families, communities, societies, country, region and global level, can manage their behaviors to live sustainably because of deeply understanding environmental education.
Importantly, the environmental education allows individuals to explore environmental issues, to raise their awareness and to be responsible for environmental care in their society. In addition, people will be able to share one’s knowledge and academic experiences to others. As a result, the exchange or the reciprocal knowledge will bring solutions concerning global change and climate change for the present and future.
