The development of environmental insight is the ultimate aim of Earth systems education. The study of the interaction between Earth systems – within the massive timescales (“deep time”) and spatial scales of geological processes – enables students to perceive and appreciate the tangible influence of human behavior on the Earth. This approach moves students away from the traditional altruistic attitude to environmental awareness, and towards a more egocentric, and geocentric, perception.
The studies of the Earth Science group thus contribute to a broader and deeper perception of the essence of environmental insight.
