Dear Cleaner Production/Pollution Prevention Colleagues:

This call for papers is an announcement for a summer/fall 1999
international Journal of Cleaner Production Special Edition on
Education, Training and Learning for Cleaner Production.  The primary
focus of this edition will be the promotion of learning in its broadest
definition, as applied to cleaner production.  We are interested in
articles that address, but are not limited to the following general
areas:

ACADEMIC LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS - ALL DISCIPLINES
 -curricula addressing cleaner production, at all levels
                   including vocational
 -promoting change in university curricula, (new courses,
                   course modification)
 -changes in university curricula/requirements
 -use of new technologies to facilitate CP learning, such as
                   distance learning, CD-Rom, etc.
 -new graduate and undergraduate programs in cleaner production

PRACTITIONER LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS
 -continuing education for professionals in engineering and business
 -non-academic learning environments such as companies and authorities
 -promotion of CP in learning organizations
 -developing learning organizations
 -learning by implementing CP changes in organizations

LEARNING IN THE GENERAL PUBLIC
 -non-traditional learning environments such as museums
 -building learning communities to support CP

RESEARCH INTO THE THEORETICAL ASPECTS OF CLEANER PRODUCTION
      EDUCATION AND TRAINING

                  learning programs
 -interdisciplinary aspects of CP education/training, ie.
                  theory, application to education and implementation

such as:
