Abstract:Environmental education is vital to the survival of mankind. Without educating the masses, they will continue to mismanage and destroy the environment on which their existence depends. Kenya has demonstrated a major commitment to the education and training of its citizens in the preservation and conservation of resources for present and future generations. Because of this commitment, Kenya is one of the leading countries on the African continent in the implementation of environmental education and training programmes at all levels of education. This paper reviews the state of environmental education in pre and postindependence Kenya and discusses future developments. It examines how environmental education concepts and practices have been incorporated into curricula of primary and secondary schools and tertiary institutions, including universities. Bibliogr.
