ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION AND CONTEMPORARY CHALLENGES STRATEGIES APPROPRIATE TO THE IRAQI ENVIRONMENT
 
In recent decades, it has been observed that environmental problems have ‎aggravated negative impacts globally, and this confirms that the negative impact is ‎not limited to those concerned with the tasks of environmental education and their ‎specialists, but also includes all people, regardless of their standard of living, their ‎living conditions, and their educational and cultural level. This shows a lack of interest ‎in the repercussions of environmental problems, and efforts to address them‏.‏ In confirmation of the foregoing, the current research in environmental education and ‎contemporary challenges focused on some strategies appropriate to the Iraqi ‎environment, through four chapters; The first chapter dealt with the problem of the ‎research, its importance, goal and scientific terminology, and the second chapter ‎dealt with environmental education, its characteristics and features and the ‎contemporary challenges facing environmental education, and the third chapter was ‎limited to presenting the procedural framework (research methodology), while the ‎fourth chapter presented some educational strategies, which may contribute to ‎Strengthening environmental education, and at the same time compatible with the ‎Iraqi environment, such as: direct experience strategy, action research strategy and ‎practical studies, strategy for studying environmental issues, role-playing strategy, ‎problem-solving strategy, cartooning strategy, and participation strategy in ‎environmental activities, in addition to reviewing The most prominent results, ‎recommendations and suggestions.

Keywords: Environment, Environmental Education, Challenges, Strategy.
