Editor: Rouhollah Aghasaleh, PhD

It is an old, yet relevant, argument that education needs to focus more on real-world issues in students’ lives and communities. Nevertheless, conventional school curricula in many countries create superficial boundaries to separate nature and social worlds. Connecting science and society provides opportunities for relevant, engaging, and authentic learning through personally meaningful, experiential, inquiry, and place-based practices which are fundamental to scientific and environmental literacy (Chinn, 2007). In other words, a science learning standpoint that acknowledges a societal standpoint accumulates that human activities are driving environmental and evolutionary change (Palumbi, 2001; Mapping Human Impacts on the Biosphere, 2001).
