An examination of what educators need to do to support and prepare young people for green jobs and a "green culture" from Daniel Goleman and the Center for Ecoliteracy.Sustainable education means that students will gain the knowledge, skills, and values necessary for the transition to sustainable societies. Sustainable living, moreover, is made possible through integrating the three strands of emotional, social, and ecological intelligence. This book, for the first time, combines these in a unified whole that leads to a great deal more than the sum of its parts.

Psychologist Daniel Goleman was born on March 7, 1946 in Stockton, California. He earned a Ph.D. from Harvard. Goleman wrote his first book, "The Meditative Mind" after studying ancient psychology systems and meditation practices in India and Sri Lanka. Goleman wrote about psychology and related fields for the New York Times for 12 years beginning in 1984. In 1993 he co-founded the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning. He is also a co-chairman of The Consortium for Research on Emotional Intelligence in Organizations and a member of the Mind and Life Institute's board of directors. Goleman has written several popular books, including "Emotional Intelligence," "Social Intelligence," "Ecological Intelligence" and "Focus: The Hidden Driver of Excellence." He received a Career Achievement award for journalism from the American Psychological Association and was elected a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science to recognize his efforts to communicate the behavioral sciences to the public.
