The relevance of an edu-communicative methodology for environmental sustainability in the classroom incorporates a new regime in environmental protection, establishing what the proposal really pursues from the general objective: the contribution to the construction of sustainable policies and the specific objectives that allows to arrive with satisfaction to this first one. Here is the compilation of information and finally the interpretation of how the edu-communicative process leaves thinking and living the identity by changing the consciousness during the university training process. The issue of edu-communication is not recently created, there is much research that agrees on the importance of linking these two concepts, developing critical thinking where education and communication go hand in hand, building messages, not only texts but realities. This applied research project, on an edu-communicative methodology, is interested in seeing in what way education and communication as pedagogical components allows to be alternating emitters and recipients, with a methodology different from that achieved by traditional education; A fact that changes imaginary and ways of seeing teaching, where we can see tangible results, where the teacher is not the teacher in his only discipline of work, but rather, is a facilitator of multidisciplinary instruments that allow the student to know, understand and know each other, analyze their environment and identify what society offers them by their different means. The global society is affected by the irresponsibility of the human being that causes, with their unconscious acts disturbing the environment due to the excessive use of the natural resources. The school as a transformer plays an important role in the education of people for the formation of knowledge related to the protection of the environment.

Different authors affirm that the university is a favorite place to generate a civilizing transformation, because it could incorporate elements that the social system alone can not integrate satisfactorily and are fundamental, such as, work, ethics and values, relationships Gender, the environment, cultural diversity and the new generation. It is hoped that the university, as a form of sustainable civilization, will contribute to the recovery of the environment by promoting new ways of producing and consuming, through the training of responsible young people, with more social awareness that allows the development of research on sustainability and environment. It is necessary that environmental education be approached from the different subjects, linked to the content of the same and in the activities of the teaching-learning process, through the relation with the environmental problems of the community, with the purpose that in the Students to promote, develop and deepen habits of care in the face of the environmental crisis, in order to achieve a process of ecological education, from the perspective of sustainable development as part of general and comprehensive education. For this reason, the development of an innovative, dynamic and effective methodology that fosters communicative environments in which young students are discovered and acquired, will enable them to develop, on the basis of edu-communication, meaningful learning, enabling them to create a critical awareness of their socio-cultural environment seeking ecological sustainability.
