The EC at the Pedagogical Environment Education Seminar

The XVIII Pedagogical Environment Education Seminar for Sustainability, organized by an association affiliated with the Earth Charter Initiative, ASPEA (Portuguese Environment Education Association), was held in Idanha-a-Nova, Portugal on January 28-30, 2011.  These seminars are spaces for participation, formation and information about Environment Education. They aim to give participants the opportunity to share experiences and best practices, reflect on environmental and sustainable issues, and establish inter-and intra-institutional coordination networks. The Earth Charter was shared in a number of the sessions.

The pledge of this seminar, titled “Learn Scapes,” is to go back to the origins, and give prominence to the values and principles, in this case those stipulated in the Earth Charter, that should govern the relationship between human beings and the rest of the community of life.
