Abstract

This article contributes to the reflection on Good Living with respect to education in Ecuador and analyzes the real possibilities for education in the construction of a more just and equitable society, where difference is lived with equality and dignity. An education for the society of Good Living. An education for the practice of interculturality is proposed as a possibility where other epistemologies, other knowledge, other ways of being and understanding the world come into play; other ways of learning and living. The idea is to think of education from different rationalities, often subarternized to modern western rationality, traditionally seen as the only true and legitimate one. To think of another education implies recognizing and learning from the experiences existing in Ecuador in intercultural education and in education and cultural diversity. For this, other pedagogies are necessary, they are pedagogies for social transformation, pedagogies of pertinence and autonomy, pedagogies of resistance, of emancipation, of liberation and dialogue in conditions of equality, pedagogies respectful of difference, not homogenizing, of liberation and transformation. These other pedagogies demand creative educational practices and greater teaching creativity; they require the participation of the educational community and the generation of public policies to transform situations of inequality and exclusion. Finally, they are pedagogies of hope.
