My research entails the examination of the historical context of the ecological and urban crises, being faced by the world today and the possibility of reconciling two education reform philosophies that have previously been identified as diametrically opposed to one another—Eco justice and Critical Pedagogy, in order to address these. This study contends that the adoption of an Eco justice philosophy that has been reconciled with elements of critical pedagogy, will lead to an education reform philosophy that will equip students, families, and entire communities with the tools to address the ecological and urban crises facing the world today.
