GADOTTI, Moacir. Pedagogy of the Earth and the Culture of Sustainability . Rev. Lusófona de Educação [online]. 2005, n.6, pp.15-29. ISSN 1645-7250.

This paper aims to be3 a challenge to the reflection on the great problems faced by human beings in today’s societies. The reflections conducted are mostly of an anthropological and ethical nature. Anthropological as it is about promoting a new concept of Man, who, being a part of the Cosmos, wonders about the meaning of life, which, on the other hand, is not separate from the meaning of the Earth; ethical because the new principles regulating human action must be based on a new paradigm which has the Earth as its root and foundation.This change in paradigm must certainly have implications for education. The Pedagogy of the earth, or Ecopedagogy, understood as a pedagogical movement, a curricular approach and a social and political movement, represents a global alternative project aimed at promoting, on the one hand, the learning of the meaning pf things, based on everyday life and, on the other, a new model of civilization which is sustainable from an ecological point of view. The education for a planetary citizenship demands the reconsideration of our curricula, a reorientation of our perception of the world of education a s an area of the individual’s inclusion not just in a local community, but in a community which is, at the same time, local and global. A planetary citizenship is, in its essence, an integral citizenship, therefore an active and full citizenship, which also presupposes the existence of a planetary democracy.
