Sustainable development: Problems, agents and strategies
Sustainable development, a general paradigm endorsed by the United Nations, is the central theme of this work, whose main purpose is to offer the reader extensive information that allows him to understand the coordinates of the new approach and places him in a position to assume the theoretical framework as his own. that the international community, represented by that high body, is promoting.
Environment, society and economy, the three great interrelated dimensions of sustainable development, with culture as a transversal axis, have their space in the book. And, of course, education, which continues to occupy a preferential place among the strategies to make change possible.
An education that, in order to respond to the challenge of sustainability, together with the four well-known basic pillars -learning to know, learning to do, learning to live together and learning to be-, must inevitably form a fifth: learning to transform oneself and transform society.
