AbstractThis paper discusses the main factors that have contributed to changes in agricultural and environmental education in New Zealand during the 1990s. The part played by central and regional government, the strategies, applications and new initiatives are also discussed. As the 1990s have progressed, there has been an increasing focus on (1) sustainability, (2) the need for greater environmental protection especially for indigenous biodiversity, (3) more effective environmental education, (4) community based action on land-care issues, (5) the need for the application of conservation management on private lands, (6) market-driven eco-certification, (7) the accelerating accessibility and application of Internet-based technology to obtain global and regional information.
