Resumo

Um dos principais desafios que a educação deve enfrentar é a busca pela Sustentabilidade. E nesse processo, o corpo docente é um pilar fundamental. Para tanto, apresenta-se uma proposta educacional de formação inicial de professores baseada na experimentação e análise de um ciclo de aprendizagem em torno do problema socioambiental da mudança climática. Para sua avaliação, foi utilizada uma metodologia mista. Os resultados obtidos sugerem que esse tipo de prática pode contribuir para melhorar o comprometimento dos futuros professores com uma Educação Ambiental voltada à Sustentabilidade e crítica ao atual modelo de desenvolvimento, permitindo a construção de um arcabouço educacional baseado em metodologias globalizadas e participativas, bem como para favorecer a aquisição de competências de ensino
