Environmental Education Proposals 2013/2014
Knowing and making the Park
Environmental education for a sustainable development
The concept of Environmental Education developed in the course of time: from
the initial approach, which focused on the safeguard of nature, now a
greater attention is paid to pollution, to the environmental emergencies and
to the social and economic dynamics, in order to develop the broader concept
of Sustainable Development Education.
The Sustainable Development Education not only concerns environment, but
also economy (consumption, poverty, north and south of the World...) and
society (rights, peace, health, cultural differences...).
Culture is the basis which makes it possible to combine these
three dimensions of sustainable development, therefore it is the instrument
to foster a renewal inspired by the principles of sustainability and to
determine the fundamental changes necessary to face the new millennium's
Sustainable Development Education regards all the life
aspects and values, especially the value of respect: respect towards other
people, both of the present and the next generation, towards diversity,
environment, and the resources of the planet we all live in.
The Sustainable Development Education aims at leading us to
adopt behaviors and lifestyles that enable us to live without being deprived
of the fundamental goods.
