FREITAS, Nadia Magalhães da Silva  y  MARQUES, Carlos Alberto. Sustainability and STS: a necessary dialogue in/for Science Education in times of environmental crisis. Educ. Rev. [online]. 2019, vol.35, n.77, pp.265-282.  Epub 25-Oct-2019. ISSN 1984-0411.

The present work shows complementary results of a previous research that aimed to answer: in what terms could be observed the insertion of the theme (in) sustainability in theses and dissertations that are characterized as analysis of practices/actions of Education in Sciences/Scientific and Technological Education, with STS focus and socio-environmental themes. The sustainability approach carries with it the appreciation of the environmental dimension, being the core of the discussions, especially in the context of STS relations. This presupposes pondering the irreversible impacts of exploitation of nature, especially under the aegis of capitalism, which inexorably involves the problem of unsustainability. However, the analyses can not be restricted to only one of the dimensions of unsustainable processes, with the risk of adopting a reductionist and fragmented approach, apart from a multidimensional approach to the issue. Therefore, due to the existence of an environmental crisis, the problem of unsustainability assumes multiple dimensions, with insertion in the social, economic, environmental and ethical fields, among others, and its approach has a strong reference in STS relations, but it is presented subtheoretically in its social aspect. Thus, a multidimensional approach to STS relationships in science education makes it possible to consider (in) sustainability in its multireferentiality of factors. In revealing the convergences of these two fields “Sustainability and STS”, in the educational field, we will be expanding both the critical view of STS relations and favoring socio-environmental sensitivity.
