Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The urgent challenge to protect the planet comprises the preoccupation to unitethe whole human family in thesearch for a sustainable and integral development. Sustainability goes through the local and the global, the individual and society, the actual and future generations, urging education to re-think itself in theface of a world scenario where poverties and inequalities knock on our consciousness, the gap between the rich and the poor continues to increase, thousands of persons have abandoned their home because of wars and unfavourable climatic conditions. The guidelines for a solution require an integral, relational and supportive approach in order to return the dignity to the excluded ones and at thesametimeto take care of the Earth. Education plays an irreplaceable role to build supportive networks, nurturing the hopeto be ableto defeat poverty and to inhabit wisely the common home, walking together towards tomorrow, with courage, fraternity and resilience.
