Student thesis: Master's Thesis


This work is part of the Master's Degree in Educational Sciences, specialization in Social Pedagogy, at the Faculty of Education and Psychology of the Catholic University of Portugal – Oporto. The theoretical study is part of the contribution of Social Pedagogy to the issue of the Sustainability of the Planet and Academic Training Requirements. With a view of this intended to understand to what extent this concern is inscribed in the academic training of educators, particularly social pedagogues. In this sense, for the purpose of grounding the theoretical framework, we resorted to the scientific literature on the issue of the Sustainability of the Planet in a framework of Social Pedagogy, as well as the legislation considered relevant. The empirical study is part of a case study that is based on a documental analysis and on the direct questioning is centered on an initial training course for social educators offered by a higher education institution. The data collected and analyzed in this study allowed us to reaffirm our conviction that Environmental Education plays a fundamental role in Academic Training, suggesting the need for its inclusion in their training plans.
