This paper contextualizes the 5th World Environmental Education Congress, discusses the theoretical underpinnings of the Congress theme, “Earth our Common Home,” and relates this theorizing to the research project that was woven through the Congress. The rationale for this research project was to invite Congress participants to have a say in co-constructing an image of environmental education and a vision for its shared future. The results of the study describe an ever-changing and increasingly complex field. They also suggest converging and diverging pluralities, which can provide critical traction for practitioners who wish to critically reflect on ongoing developments in environmental education.
