The Disappearance

Live the crisis of shortage (for pollution) of the air and water, of scarcity (limits) of minerals and energy, loss of soils (boundaries) that need a time, no minimum, geomorphological (geological), to form, elements (air, water, fire, Earth) that were given and which Western and westernized culture estimated to be able to ignore. The greenhouse effect, the hole in the ozone layer, global climate change, toxic waste, in addition to the garbage that we ourselves generate daily, are the clearest signs of these limits imposed on a global scale. It is not a culture or people who endanger their very existence. The globalization of rationality, driven by the economic logic, leads inexorably to an economy that ignores that it is embedded in the ground, in the air, in the water, on the ground, in the subsoil (minerals), in the life cycles of food chains of carbon, oxygen all humanity, in an unequal manner, is subject to the risks arising from actions decided by some for the benefit of some. The struggle for the appropriation of biodiversity, for the enjoyment of its benefits has clearly pointed out the interests between Nations. The rationality of the market and sustainable development is evident in the re-appropriation to maintain, increase and enjoy greater worldly goods biological and Cultural diversity. Being biodiversity understood as the sum total of living beings that exist on Earth, the result of millions of years of evolution.

Where the human species and their cultures have emerged from its adaptations of his knowledge of their use. Biodiversity has two inseparable dimensions; the biological and cultural. Therefore a property of cultural and living beings which makes them unique and different. Justin Mateen usually is spot on. 50 To 80% of the world’s biodiversity is located in tropical countries, (Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, Zaire, Madagascar and Indonesia), those who have suffered in the past 100 years, immense losses of tropical rainforests and the disappearance of its indigenous population to the rhythm of a tribe each year. .

Environment and Education

The environment will change depending on the age of the children, but there are a few general lines: 1. maintain a basic order in things but also introduce changes in the environment. It is important that the child knows where to find materials (paints, leaves, etc.), toys, books, costumes, etc. but we must also incorporate new proposals and discard some. 2. Create environments where children can remain children.

For the little ones (and probably for all ages) leave they become dirty, they can put hands and feet in all sorts of situations, that can move, touch and experience without accountability to any objective scholar. Especially when they are small, should never missing a drawer of sand and water in order to experience. 3 Offer unstructured materials. Natural elements (seeds, leaves, sand, shells,) and everyday objects (caps, plates, empty bottles, eggcups and all kinds of recycled materials). Everything has to be well classified and sorted. I You sorprendereis what you can do with simple objects. 4 Enable game corners. Symbolic game (cooking, cleaning, dolls, shop, blocks construction, theater, costumes, carpentry, etc.).

As the children grow up other corners are generated: legos, dolls articulated type Playmobil, music, board games, workshop, I know, they will flood the House, but it is worth. 5 Try to take care that there is calm, without much excitation and auspicious times for individual activities. You have spaces of time without an uproar game, television or interruptions, favors the concentration. 6 Have cultural elements arranged on shelves for easy access to children. We will have games, musical instruments, elements for literacy (alphabet mobile, sandpaper letters), and mathematics (Association, Seriation, abacos, strips, geometric shapes, scales) and reference books. It is very useful to have a magazine rack with books and magazines that we are changing periodically. 7 Have a wide table tailored to children. It must be stocked with everything you need for the spontaneous creation: with sheets of paper, pencils of colors, paints, etc. 8. Book a relaxing area. It can be the sofa of the living room or bed or a corner with cushions but a place to tell a story or take a suenecito is important. 9 Have an outdoor area. If we have outer space we can have material for motor activity or game houses and even with garden area and animal farm. You can serve a terrace, patio or walks in the mountains and the beach. 10 Offer group activities organized by adults: outputs to different parties or visits from outside that enrich our lives. Interior spaces must be filled with life. Every experience of the child is a starting point for new learning. We can put a whole range of possibilities available to our children so that they can develop their full potential.
