We’re pleased to announce the development of a collective work titled “Eco-Ar-Te para o reencantamento do mundo” (Eco-Art for the re-enchantment of the world), under the coordination of Michele Sato, Affiliate of Earth Charter International, which will be published soon by the publishing house of the Federal University of São Carlos (UFSCar).
This 36-chapter book is an alliance between art and the environment. Text, image, landscape, poetry, sound and body are used via theater, cinema, photography, painting and many other forms of artistic expression — all allied with environmental dimension for a wonderful result.
The opening chapters feature “Committed to the Earth Charter” by Leonardo Boff, and “Science and the Culture of the Earth Charter” by Marcos Terena. These texts are transcriptions of unpublished lectures that were originally presented in Mato Grosso in 1998 during the International Earth Charter Conference.
Along with this book, the Mato Grosso Network for Environmental Education (REMTEA) is promoting it’s fifth annual gathering, which has always worked in association with the Earth Charter movement of the state of Mato Grosso. The Earth Charter and the Environmental Education Treaty for Sustainable Societies and Global Responsibilities will also be highlighted during the event, which will be held in October 10-13, 2007 at the Federal University of Mato Grosso, Cuiabá.
