This essay examines the relationship between research and policy and, more
specifically, how researchers might relate to policy work. Given the current
international policy focus on climate change, green growth and sustainability in
general, it argues for strengthening and widening policy research in the areas of
Environmental Education (EE), Education for Sustainable Development and
Climate Change Education. It especially makes a case for two kinds of research
on EE policy: (1) a multi-sited approach to empirical documentation and theory
development which explores the relationships between international policy
agreements and local practice, and (2) an interactive policy-engaged approach to
research.
