Education is key to saving the planet

This was the conclusion of a meeting of teachers from Fe y Alegría Ecuador’s Oscar Romero school and other educational institutions in the area, that were invited to the event that was carried out as part of the first Panamazonian Encounter of Fe y Alegría Schools.

Antonio Pérez Esclarín and Fabricio Alaña, international experts, highlighted the importance of an authentic education, in which ecology and knowledge are necessary in order to reduce our footprint on this planet. At the same time, they confirmed the need to humanize education, from the perspective of a pedagogy of life, based on harmony between being and doing.

The participating educators welcomed the proposals of the panelists in order to strengthen actions that are already being carried out in their classrooms, and that integrate knowledge with awareness and a commitment to care for and protect our common home.
