What would education in a post-growth society look like?

In an article for the Australian research journal Curriculum Perspectives, Ricky John White (Southern Cross University) explores what education in a post-growth society could look like. White writes that society and the global economy will need to adapt to a post-growth model to avoid ecological destruction. In this situation, educational policy and practice would need to adjust accordingly to prepare students for a post-growth society. White outlines seven efforts that could be used to train students for a post-growth world, which include teaching them how to connect with and regenerate the places they live in, embracing land-based education, and teaching students how to think critically about historical narratives and the future.
