Antecedents the planet earth faces the challenge to revert the impacts caused by the man. The environmental crisis is complex and has to do with the forms in that the society has been related to the environment. This relation implies historical and social aspects. Any human activity has to do with the nature in its different scopes and spaces, independent of the level in which it is wanted to observe. The environmental problems have to do with the lack of brings back to consciousness ecological, shown by the attitude that we declared towards our surroundings. We need to learn new forms to see the reality, to assume the new paradigms with world the own vision of the context in which we lived.

The viable development has appeared like an alternative. It is defined as the development model that satisfies the needs with the present generations without jeopardizing the possibilities that the future generations satisfy the own ones (Bruntdland Report, 1987). She is one proposal that it looks for to balance the economic growth, the protection of the environment and the social fairness.

It is by this, that must use educative mechanisms that allow to create a change in the thought of the people.
