Abstract [en]

Sustainability issue are often characterised by complexity and uncertainty which implies severe challenges when relying on science as a source for reliable knowledge when making decisions (either as a member of parliament, government official, judge, business owner or executive manager in a business). One example of such an issue concern the use of pesticides, the state of bees, biodiversity and food security. This ‘wicked’ character of sustainability issues points to the need for capability to make decisions also in the absence of previously established principles. Accordingly, education needs to make students prepared to make decisions also in the absence of formal regulations and legislation. For instance, students who in the future could be working in corporations making decisions about what products to sell or not to sell. This paper presents two teaching approaches drawing on educational drama that could offer students the opportunity to practice making decisions when encountering so called wicked sustainability problems. A didactic model drawing on the concept of ‘dislocatory moments’ and short empirical examples from business education in upper secondary education are provided to specifically illuminate (a) when different worldviews or perspectives on sustainable development comes to the fore in educational practice and, (b) emancipatory educational qualities in terms of subjectification. The (pluralist) teaching approaches are also further discussed in relation to implications connected to teaching in a ‘post-truth era’.
