The group's main objective is the study of environmental education processes in formal and non-formal contexts. We are dedicated to community-based environmental education, to the articulation between environmental education and political ecology, as well as to crossings with other ways of thinking and building experiences in environmental education. The research is based on the experiences of social movements, traditional populations and groups in a situation of socio-environmental vulnerability in the Latin American context.
The group is linked to the School of Education of the Federal University of the State of Rio de Janeiro - UNIRIO. It focuses on the study of pedagogical practices in environmental education in formal and non-formal contexts, emerging from popular struggles, social movements, traditional populations, indigenous peoples and groups in a situation of socioenvironmental vulnerability in the Latin American scenario.
