Editorial by the Editor, Professor Kristján Kristjánsson

In anticipation of the upcoming Association for Moral Education conference on Morality, Environmental Sustainability, and Education (Oct 29-31, 2020), Taylor and Francis kindly invited me to put together a Virtual Special Issue (VSI) with important papers from past issues of the journal about environmental virtues and sustainability education. The VSI will be free to access for a set time so that readers from all over the world can read the articles irrespective of their subscription status.

I decided to select 6 articles that all focus on environmental education as a moral educational issue. Countering climate change, loss of biodiversity, environmental pollution and other degradations of the natural environment are challenges that cannot be viewed in isolation from other psycho-social issues, nor from questions of how to cultivate young minds at school for dealing with the greatest moral challenges of our times.

This curated collection of Journal of Moral Education (JME) papers provides a taste of numerous contributions to the journal, over the years, on the theme of environmental education. They also illustrate how ‘the environmental’ is both conceptually and empirically linked to ‘the moral’ and ‘the civic’.

Journal of Moral Education

The Journal of Moral Education provides a unique interdisciplinary forum for the discussion and analysis of moral education and development throughout the lifespan. The journal encourages submissions across the human sciences and humanities that use a range of methodological approaches and address aspects of moral reasoning, moral emotions, motivation and moral action in various contexts (e.g., cultural, gender, family, schooling, community, leisure, work) and roles (e.g., parent, teacher, student, civic, professional).
