Abstract

Sustainability is an important concept in geography that can be used to analyze a great variety of topics related to nature, society, economy, and their interconnections and interdependence. The objective of this chapter is to analyze how the actors of the pedagogic environment, organized in the regulative and instructional discourses, function to recontextualize knowledge. Consequently, the pedagogic discourse focused on the concept of sustainability is examined in order to offer a general guidance about the conditions in which the concept could be recontextualized.
