Sustainability and environmental preservation depend on an ecological consciente, which depends on education. Therefore, ecopedagogy, based on the knowledge that we belong to a single life community, promotes educational practices that bring up solidarity and global civic consciousness. Ecopedagogy implies on a radical change in mentality regarding the quality of life and the environment, which is directly linked to the type of relationship that we have with ourselves, with others and with nature.

It is not aimed only at educators, but at all citizens in the planet and is linked to the utopian project of changing human, social and environmental relations, promoting sustainable and environmental education (ecoeducation) based on critical and innovative thinking. Freires referenced pedagogy developed by Francisco Gutirrez and Moacir Gadotti.
