In Colombia, environmental education relies on an institutional framework that received initial definition by the National Policy on Environmental Education, and has been reinforced recently with the law 1549 in 2012. However, its application cannot be said to have gone beyond the normative commitment, because there is evidence of a clear disconnect between the formal, non-formal and informal education sectors; for this reason there are serious environmental and social problems that reflect the need for training of those who make up these sectors. This work is documentary in nature and addresses, in the first place, the concept of environmental education; it then presents the evolution and the practice of this in the three sectors mentioned above; and finally proposes a series of strategies based on the concept of sustainability networks, which sketch out long-term goals for the environmental management of a complex system made up of various actors with diverse interests.
