A total of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are included in the agenda, with specific targets and actions to achieve this ambitious overarching goal. In Sustainable Development the person is key for policies and efforts to improve conditions in each social context. The three key aspects to consider are: (i) the promotion of remote human and socially equitable development for all humanity based on inclusion, (ii) the guidance of economic development at the service of human development, and finally, (iii) the promotion of responsible use of the planet’s natural resources . The fast growth of population in large urban areas is expected to generate or aggravate many problems related to citizen insecurity, energy and water supply, excessive production and over-consumption, waste generation, etc. At the same time, access to affordable, reliable, sustainable, and modern energy for all people living in rural areas must be ensured. Education is a fundamental tool to build sustainable societies actively involving all citizens in the sustainable development. The objective of this paper is to describe the ALMIA project as a strategic plan for the transformation of a small village called Almatret (Catalonia, Spain) towards sustainable development as a net positive energy and sustainable village, aligned with the implementation of the 17 SDGs. This paper focuses on ALMIA Educativa as an educational strategy to make the energy transition effective in the rural village.
