GONZALEZ GAUDIANO, Edgar J.  y  MEIRA CARTEA, Pablo Á.. Educación para el cambio climático: ¿Educar sobre el clima o para el cambio?. Perfiles educativos [online]. 2020, vol.42, n.168, pp.157-174.  Epub 09-Mar-2021. ISSN 0185-2698.

Climate change constitutes humanity’s most important challenge for this century. It is a complex phenomenon resulting from the prevailing civilizing process which will further destabilize global natural and social cycles. Therefore, the apathy which the social sciences and education have displayed, and continue to display, on the issue along our current trajectory toward generalized collapse is disconcerting. The article offers a critical analysis of the two fundamental lines of response on the subject formulated for educational purposes. We discuss their scope and limitations, and examine more fertile possibilities in terms of collective effectiveness, with the aim of strengthening the capacity and willingness of people and communities to effect urgent significant changes which help to avoid the worst possible scenarios of the climate crisis.

Palabras llave : Environmental education; Education for climate change; Climate education; Climate change; Collapse.
