Environmental Education and Awareness is a component of Encyclopedia of Human Resources Policy, Development and Management which is part of the global Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS), an integrated compendium of twenty one Encyclopedias.

The Theme is organized into seven different topics which represent the main scientific areas of the theme: The first topic, Formal Environmental Education at Preschool, Primary and Secondary Levels; important issues of children's formal environmental education are discussed in this topic, considering that as future adults today's children are more likely than not to make adverse impacts on the natural environment and earth's life-support systems through their behavior, life-styles and attitude, the importance of formal environmental education for children as well as of instilling in their consciousness awareness of the natural environment and respect for it cannot be over-stated. The succeeding six topics are Formal Environmental Education at the Undergraduate Level; Formal Environmental Education at the Graduate Level; Modern and Innovative Techniques for Environmental Education; Professional Environmental Education; Continuing Education; The Voluntary Sector and Initiatives in Environmental Education. Each of these consists of a topic chapter emphasizing the general aspects and various subject articles explaining the back ground, theory and practice of a specific type of environmental education and awareness for achieving global sustainable development and global environmental sustainability that are now at the top of international environmental agenda. These two volumes are aimed at the following five major target audiences: University and College Students, Educators, Professional Practitioners, Research Personnel and Policy Analysts, Managers, and Decision Makers and NGOs.
