Abstract

Environmental sustainability is the most visible recent global movement addressing the effect of human activities on the environment. Because of its effect on human health and well-being, it is imperative that the health education discipline begin to consider this topic as one of the important content areas. This paper provides a model for the integration of environmental sustainability concept into a traditional health education course that equips students with the basic competencies of planning, implementing, and coordinating health education programs. The main purpose is to describe how to reach a maximum number of people and educate them regarding this important issue by using service-learning and advocating for sustainable health and wellness through a health education course. © 2009 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
