عنوان مقاله [English]
In recent decades, environmental crisis has been regarded as the most critical humans’ concerns. Besides, sustainable development as a holistic approach plays a noticeable role in meeting the challenges and problems raised by this crisis. One of the most practical methods to develop the concepts of sustainable development is teaching these concepts to various people of the societies. Meanwhile, education especially in elementary school, considered as the most basic education levels in every societies, is one of most important objectives of fostering future generations for living in the society.
This paper aims to propose an ecological pattern of education for sustainable development through elementary school ground by applying the research method based on documentary studies, reviewing the sources, and their analysis. The assumption is that the school ground especially in terms of designing based on sustainable development principals, can act as a 3D book. It is also assumed that school ground has the potentiality to teach the concepts of sustainability to the students and people involved in the school. Accordingly, a model is presented for school ground based on the three principals of sustainable design including economy of resources, life cycle, and humanistic design. The outcomes show that designing school ground based on these principals can extensively teach the concepts of sustainable development to students and other individuals in school.
