Summary In the field of environment-related education, the period from the early 70s to the present is marked by continuity and contestation. There has been a remarkable continuity of environmentrelated practice; and there has also been contestation in the language of the field, with terms like ecology education, environmental education and education for sustainable development becoming highly visible at different times. Presently, the environment-related work formerly known as ‘environmental education’ (EE) is being aggressively and extensively ‘re-badged’ as ‘education for sustainable development’ (ESD). This paper explores the role of slogans in the fields of environmental education and education for sustainable development.
