Abstract

This study examines how cultural codes in environmental adult education can be used to “frame” collective identity, develop counter-hegemonic ideologies, and catalyze “educative-activism” within social movements. Three diverse examples are discussed, spanning movements in urban Victoria, BC, the redwoods of northern California and the coral reefs and beaches of Hawai’i.

Catalysts for Collective Conscientization in Environmental Adult Education: Mr. Floatie, Tree Squatting and Save-our-Surfers

This study examines how cultural codes in environmental adult education can be used to “frame” collective identity, develop counter-hegemonic ideologies, and catalyze “educative-activism” within social movements. Three diverse examples are discussed, spanning movements in urban Victoria, BC, the redwoods of northern California and the coral reefs and beaches of Hawai’i.
