Environmental Education & Outreach

Environmental Education

 

“Era Verde” Project

The curriculum seeks to be adapted and correlated with the school curriculum emanated by the Ministry of Public Education.

Within the strategies we use meaningful teaching, which ranges from games, art and fieldwork.

 

Teacher Education

IMG-20160524-WA0004Starting from the direct and indirect interaction between local communities and natural resources in the study area, educational centers play an important role in the communities, making teachers and administrative agents responsible for inculcating contents and values in students.

Educating educators allows multiplying knowledge to students and other key people of the communities, which allows through the process to influence the change of conscience and behavior of communities, this allows the mitigation of direct environmental impacts to wildlife.
