A non-ecological form of living which does not take the rest of creation seriously in any positive manner, does not just destroy nature but precisely destroy nature by gradually eliminating human existence from the planet earth. In Ghana, such elimination has been so rapid that if corrective measures are not taken, there may soon be only a few Ghanaians left in Ghana. This paper attempts to provide an ecological pedagogy for teacher training institutions to create and nurture both environmental concerns and ecological orientation in students. Using qualitative approach, the study realises thatthe current educational system seems not to be ecologically inclined. The study seeks to propose that indigenous education should focus on teaching indigenous knowledge, models, methods and content within formal or non-formal education system and should be incorporated into current teacher training institutions with ecological framework. This paper is a contribution to the development of a viable ecological framework using indigenous knowledge values.
