OVERVIEW

The pedagogical and educational treatment of the discipline is in line with the guidelines contained in the EU's Agenda 2030. This year's programme focuses in particular on the following theme: "educating for sustainable lifestyles through the enhancement of cultural diversity". According to this approach, training for sustainability means acquiring skills that are indispensable for making informed decisions and acting responsibly in any life experience.

 

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course aims to bring students closer to the concepts of sustainability and sustainable education. Through a teaching method that refers to the constructivist paradigm, teamwork and student participation in the construction of knowledge, it will address a problem of particular interest drawn from current events in the area, which has sustainability as one of the main keys to interpretation and allows you to develop reflections on the relationship between man/environment and the sustainable use of natural resources. These reflections will allow you to expand the contents of the education process.
