The Meaningful Learning podcast is about designing and delivering innovative experiences that provide just in time learning. It brings together a community of provocateurs who understand that learning is both a personal and a social experience, and can only be meaningful if it has an impact on the learner and their community. We believe in purposeful thinking and action for positive impact on the welfare of the bio-collective.

S2E17:Learning as giving back to nature (ft. Helen Kopnina, Ph.D.)

In this episode, I speak with Helen Kopnina, Researcher in Sustainability and Biodiversity at The Hague University of Applied Science (HHS) and Coordinator of the Sustainable Business program. She conducts research within three main areas: sustainability, environmental education and biological conservation. Helen is the author of over two hundred articles and (co)author and (co)editor of seventeen books. She recently wrote an article with Haydn Washington on Ecocentrism is the pathway to sustainability. In this episode, we discuss: 

  • The role of education in helping us take the little and bigger steps toward sustainability,
  • How so many experiences in school take from nature, but forget to give back,
  • How anthropocentrism opens the gateways to sexism, racism, economic injustice... as well as the degradation of the planet.

Join us for another episode and we look forward to your comments.
