Cutanda, Grian-Antonio; Murga-Menoyo, María Ángeles
Journal of Teacher Education for Sustainability, v16 n2 p18-38 2014
This research aims to prove that the mythical-metaphorical narratives from cultures in harmonic relationship with their natural environment can be considered as an educational resource within the context of education for sustainable development. Using the Earth Charter as a basis and after establishing as analysis categories the competencies that education should foster in the students from this perspective, a content analysis of 28 stories was performed. The results endorse the existing coherence between the materials analysed and the principles and values that the Earth Charter's text reflects and the relevance of these materials as educational resources within the framework of education for sustainable development.
