Abstract

This paper explores how material participation may be approached methodologically in Environment and Sustainability Education (ESE). With point of departure in two empirical cases focusing on ESE in Swedish schools, on the one hand, and Danish kindergartens on the other, we discuss methodological approaches to exploring how children and students interact with materials in processes of ‘making’, and the challenges these entail for the research process. Theoretically, the paper draws on Tim Ingold’s writings (2000; 2011; 2013) on ‘the mesh’ and his notion of ‘making’.
