Adviser on New Pedagogies
PhD Director of the University La Salle, in San Jose, Costa Rica, Cruz Prado is a mythic figure in the educational world, for having been the founder, together with Francisco Gutiérrez, of the Ecopedagogy or Pedagogy of the Earth. This is an educational approach emerged from the currents of critical pedagogy and focused on the relationship of the human being with the Earth. Cruz has been a representative of the NGOs of Central America in the Central American Civil Initiative, as well as an International Consultant from 1996 to 2007. At the moment, Cruz is immersed in the creation of new pedagogical approaches for post-capitalist times.
