dc.description.abstractMajor shifts in the world ‘order’ – especially the urgency of climate change and biosphere destruction – pose challenges for education which require significant changes of practice in schools and universities, and thus to teacher education. This paper starts from a brief summary of issues at stake in the ‘Anthropocene Age’, arguing that the converging environmental crises have to be linked to the crises of capitalism. Pragmatist philosophy and the practice turn in the human sciences provide directions for rethinking the tasks which teacher education can contribute to an activist-oriented development of education in these difficult times for humans and the planet.en_ZA
