Concept Map for Environmental Education Planning: Capacitation of Volunteers for the FIFA Football World Cup in Brazil
Saito, Carlos Hiroo
Journal of Education for Sustainable Development, v10 n2 p289-308 Sep 2016
The Brazilian Ministry of Sports organized a system of volunteers to receive the visitors during the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) Football World Cup. The instructional material to capacitate these volunteers focused on environment and sustainability issues and it was developed in an integrative systemic framework supported by concept maps. The development procedures were organized in a hierarchical structure, addressing the main zero level, zero plus one level, zero minus one level and the subsequent downscaling levels. The main knowledge issues that were integrated were: biome concept, climate, biodiversity and endangered species, protected areas, public health, epidemiology, sanitation, sustainable tourism, social responsibility and local welfare. The instructional material was adapted to the virtual learning environment and the capacitation was concluded. This article highlights the use of concept maps for integrative planning and promoting an interdisciplinary approach to the environmental and sustainability issues related to tourism and health.
