The Interface of Environmental and Humane Education as an Emerging and Relevant Dialogue: A Point of View from Brazil
Castellano, Maria; Quirino de Luca, Andrea; Sorrentino, Marcos
Canadian Journal of Environmental Education, v16 p93-105 2011
This article addresses the interface between environmental and humane education, as a theoretical and practical emerging field in Brazil. We begin by presenting conceptual similarities that, in our view, underpin and justify the need for a growing connection between the two fields of research and educational practice. We then describe an experience of an educational workshop conducted in Campinas-Sao Paulo that sought to bring the two fields closer, involving the screening and discussion of a Brazilian documentary about the meat industry. We consider the possibility that drawing environmental and humane education together may contribute to changes in favour of all forms of life. (Contains 2 notes.)
