Kærlighed som modstand: om genstridighed i pædagogik for bæredygtighed

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


The article discusses a certain kind of resistance that emerged from long-term action research projects aimed at developing early childhood nature pedagogy to include a stronger focus on sustainable development. This resistance is deeply rooted in a critique of the societal and cultural management of nature, which shapes a resistance to allowing children to be swallowed up by wrong societal developments. The article shows that nature pedagogy holds complex and ambiguous ideas about the relations between enlightenment, love and the possibilities for humans to form a better world. The article aims to show how love for nature may become a resistance to children’s involvement in matters connected with sustainability. The article also argues that there is a need for pedagogy that invites even young children to sense and investigate the complex relations between nature, individuals and society.
