This paper addresses critical thinking in teaching and learning and in particular Caroline Kreber’s ideas about lifelong learning. It sets these thoughts in communication with one of the greatest challenges facing present-day sustainability science, namely ecological literacy and the extinction of environmental experience. It ends by discussing how universities could boost affective environmental learning through the formation of ‘Communities of Practice (CoPs), targeted at environmental stewardship.
