dc.description.abstract This study investigates the incorporation of Environmental Education as a phase organiser in learning programmes in the Foundation Phase by educators as recommended by Curriculum 2005. A literature review indicates the role which Environmental Education plays in society. It presents a feasible strategy for changing attitudes to the environment. It is interdisciplinary and holistic, relevant, practical and focuses on learners and learning. It can improve the quality of life of all by enabling people to utilise resources, make informed decisions, apply and transfer knowledge, thereby empowering others. An empirical investigation adopted a qualitative research approach. Participants in a case study from primary schools in the Malamulele area, Northern Province, as well as two specialists were purposefully selected. Multiple methods of data collection, such as observation and in-depth interviews based on questionnaires, were used. Photographs and relevant documents complemented the data gathering. Finally, recommendations based on the findings were made. en
