This article results from a theoretic-bibliographical research that focuses on Environmental Education under a multicultural perspective. For that purpose, the discussion about globalization and the relation between Multiculturalism and Environmental Education takes into consideration the urgency of the matter among educators, researchers, the university and other social sectors such as governmental andnon-governmental organizations. It is assumed that Education as a social practice and promoter of the democratic citizenship should be guided by multicultural purposes, corroborating inter-cultural practices. The Environmental Education is one of the Educational dimensions that can contribute significantly to the advance of socio-cultural practices. Such perspective leads to thinking about and constructing educational strategies in order to professionally develop and endow educators with an interdisciplinary and complex view of the world, within the context of environmental education on a multicultural perspective.
