"Challenging the human-nature relationship: towards new educational paradigms"

The theme "Challenging the human-nature relationship: towards new educational paradigms" is part of the current discussions on the need to promote and implement a transformation in the foundations and practices of education for sustainability. The international urgency declared in the educational agendas of organizations such as UNESCO and the OECD, together with the socio-environmental and health crises, call us to critically examine the ways in which research and teaching is conducted. At the same time, these challenges call us to propose actions to re-think and re-orient the link between educational institutions and their environment - their social, cultural, ecological and political surroundings - in pursuit of a more sustainable education.
