Abstract
This lecture focuses on teachers’ influence on students’ learning about the ethical and political dimension of sustainability issues. By describing and discussing a variety of ‘ethical moves’ and 'political moves' it is shown how teachers can open-up a space for articulating moral reactions and deliberating on ethical opinions (ethical moves) or for a conflict-oriented political deliberation in which students raise and defend conflicting standpoints regarding how to organise society in the face of sustainability problems (political moves). By performing ethical moves, teachers can turn students’ moral experiences into fruitful drivers for pluralistic forms of education by enabling students to express and share moral experiences and standpoints, to articulate ethical differences and controversies and to reflect and deliberate on moral reactions and dilemmas. Performing political moves creates opportunities for students to personally experience the judgements, prioritisations and decision-making about different and competing alternatives that are involved in the question how to organise society sustainably – and to learn from that experience.
