Environmental education (EE) can play an important role in developing environmentally conscious and active citizens. This thesis investigates how EE could contribute to the development of more environmentally aware and active schools and students in Indonesia.

The thesis is an anthropological study of EE in senior high schools and NGOs in Java, Indonesia. It explores how 'culture' impacts the conceptualisation, practice and positioning of EE in the Indonesian education system. The thesis aims to increase understanding of how EE is practised by schools and NGOs, and to instigate academic discussions of how 'culture' influences environmental perspectives and approaches to EE.
