Abstract

In the frame of Sustainable Development promoted by the Agenda 2030, the paper will enter into dialogue with the cultural, social and economic proposals of Buen vivir (Ecuador and Bolivia) and of Ubuntu (South Africa) as an opportunity for a pedagogical and inter-cultural reflection. Listening to different Human Development's perspectives, carried out in community (through practices of responsibility, education and participation) and in balance with the environment (by respecting Nature's Rights), is not only a way of knowing Others' history, but it becomes an action for social justice, when we recognize the value of giving voice to other visions and problematize our own usual perspective, grounded in an individualistic and Eurocentric assumption. This new ‘looking glass’ may teach us the need to nurture cultural, social and biological diversity as a pedagogical and economic responsibility, in order to educate to search alternative answers and open the oikos' doors to the world.
