EDUCATION FOR LIFE NGO

ONG Educar para vivirCo-founded by Professor Collado in 2012,Education for Life NGOpromotes the formation of different educational agents in innovative methodological techniques, with an international and holistic perspective, in order to get the awareness for current problems of the world-society. To do this, we start from the Global Citizenship Education approach, where the creation of alternative curricular materials and activities support our appropriate methodological tool to capture human dialogical cohesion between different local educational agents: students, families, teachers, institutions and the media.

On our philosophical working horizons we aim to denote the transformer scope of Education for Sustainable Development, which we try to develop in different social contexts in which we work in: Peru, Brazil, Palestine, Dominican Republic, and Spain. Education is not only a basic human right, but it is also an essential component of economic and social development. For that reason, our work promotes a democratic and accountable education in schools, where teachers´ attitude plays a very important role as actors democratization of responsibility and sustainability, they are agents of awareness and training of the educational community, and especially for children and young people.

Therefore, we believe that the school should be seen as the place of learning, rather than the place where they teach, achieving an active and participatory education, disseminating trans-disciplinary knowledge and including all educational agents, representing one necessary task to promote a dynamic and critical thinking, generating new ideas that bring economic and social development, aimed to create a better world in the future.
