Keywords: Environmental rationality | Culture | Sustainability | Identity

Cultural diversity and the preservation of peoples identities are fundamental for making sustainable development at local and global levels viable. The practices of nature use by indigenous people andpeasant societies are organized by ethnic styles. Thus, culture acquires new value as a resource for sustainable development. The purpose of this article is to rethink space and time, and to resignify nature and culture in the perspective of an environmental rationality, as an alternative to logocentrism in scientific rationality and dominant homogeneizing globalization.
