Ethics for Sustainable Development

Christine Syrgiannis, Ivani Catarina Arantes Fazenda

Abstract


The aim of this Paper is to bring some reflections on how the Vision / Approach of Interdisciplinar Education can help build the attitude necessary towards a new global Ethics for sustainable development. Reverence for Life and space for the creative aspects of the Being can bring innovations alined to the sense of sustainability beyond the mere need to comply with regulations, but rather, the spontaneous will to adopt Universal Ethical Principles. Research has shown that this attitude is the result of inner transformation, an opportunity which is offered to both, teachers and students, through Interdisciplinary Education, in an environment of mutual trust and respect, helping develop awareness of the Being during the creative process. This attitude will be carried to the personal, academic and professional performance in any field of knowledge, bringing long lasting effects for humanity, as a whole.
