The objective of this article was to understand the ecological education of functional and meaningful sexuality, linked to the integral formation of children and adolescents and its influence on the processes of individual and social development. The research was developed through the qualitative approach, under the interpretative paradigm, with a phenomenological perspective and a field design. Ten participants were selected from a public educational institution in the city of Cúcuta (Colombia), to whom an in-depth interview was applied. In the results, it is possible to infer that the construction of knowledge on sexuality should not be cumulative and without ideological biases, since there are ecological interrelationships, for example, the one established between school and family through the student. It is concluded that an ecological education on sexuality should start from the recognition of oneself for a harmonious life and its influence on the processes of individual and social development, in the training to develop self-esteem, to give and receive love, to feel pleasure and in the responsible and respectful procreation of life, seeking the prevention of problems related to sexuality.
