Humanistic Education for Sustainable Development
Sustainable development paradigm involves a shift of attitude and, therefore, Education for Sustainable Development, supposed to have a transformative role, must aim this purpose: to help human being to overcome his selfish condition, to think and to act responsibly, motivated by sympathy, as Adam Smith wrote in “The Theory of Moral Sentiments”, and solidarity with present and future generations. This is not an easy task, as the neo-classical paradigm works mainly under the principles of competition and profit seeking. Economic development is important and professional skills are needed, but the current higher educational system, based on specialisation and employability, must be rethought taking into account humanistic values and principles.
