Foster, John (2002) Sustainability, Higher Education and the Learning Society. Environmental Education Research, 8 (1). pp. 35-41. ISSN 1469-5871Full text not available from this repository.
The Dearing Report emphasised the idea of a 'learning society' as the new context of UK higher education, but conceived this on a model of adaptivity to economically- and technologically-driven change. While there are real shifts in their social relations here with which universities have to reckon, they can also be understood on a much richer model of exploratory social intelligence. The growing concern for environmental sustainability is both a recognition of the need for this alternative model, and a major ground of its importance.
