Environmental Education and Training in Brazil. Discussion Paper No. 84.
Brazilian environmental education and training experience is recent but has a concrete base of generating awareness among all levels of the population and also aims to train people to protect, control and manage the use of environmental resources. Several visits were made by the author to organizations, enterprises and institutions from federal, state and municipal governments that are directly and indirectly involved with environmental affairs. Contacts were also made with non governmental organizations (NGOs) and private environmental initiatives to analyze and compare alternative paths in the Brazilian environmental education and training process. This study surveyed the institutions dealing directly or indirectly with environmental concerns of the Brazilian states of Minas Gerais, Parana, Rio de Janeiro, Rio Grande do Sul, and Sao Paulois including the Federal District of Brasilia. The institutions were mainly environmental agencies, federal universities, state or federally-owned enterprises, research and scientific financing agencies, schools, research centers, and alternative initiatives. The report is organized in seven chapters containing a description of activities developed by the organizations including illustrative schemes and drawings, statistical data and concluding remarks.
