Dr Glenn Strachan talks to Dr Rolf Jucker
Dr Rolf Jucker, an alumnus of the Education for Sustainability Masters course, is interviewed about his latest book by Dr Glenn Strachan. The book called ‘Can We Cope with the Complexity of Reality’ analyses the reasons behind some of the crises facing humanity and why people find it difficult to confront these crises and change their behaviours. The discussion covers Dr Jucker’s learning journey in relation to writing the book, as well as key themes such the challenge of achieving a trans-disciplinary perspective on reality, the importance of an evidence-based approach to knowledge and education, the need to reinvent democracy and a critical look at education for sustainable development.
