Abstract:

Seminar discussions and Internet resources were used to stimulate debate and enhance second-year undergraduate students' understanding of Local Agenda 21. Emphasis was placed on exploring local authorities' Local Agenda 21 strategies and examining how these were being implemented and monitored. In order to obtain a selection of strategies from different authorities the students used material published on Worldwide Web sites. Prior to the module less than 10 per cent of the students had heard of Local Agenda 21 and they all felt that they should have done, either through formal education or through the media. The use of the Internet allowed quick and easy access to a number of different authorities' strategies and most of the students felt encouraged to use it as a resource to support other courses.
