The Education Faculty of the Baixada Fluminense
Continuous Education Nucleus (NEC)

The Education Faculty of the Baixada Fluminense plays an active part in important activities within Environmental Education. The Faculty is situated in the town of Duque de Caxias, and since 1997 it has been fostering debates arising from the nature of the surrounding communities, as well as proposals for change within these same communities. One of the Faculty´s core aims is to lay the foundations for the role of the public sector school as an essential agent for the setting up of Environmental Education projects, together with the need to create the means by which the communities will participate in discussions on the future of their towns. Thus, the extramural project "Environmental Education in the Baixada Fluminense" was conceived, which aims at developing both the skills of public sector teachers in the Baixada Fluminense, as well as provide specialist advice for environmental projects. At present, the Faculty is developing a project together with its Continuous Education Nucleus (NEC), entitled "Environmental Education: a Production by Various Actors". This project has created various partnerships involving institutions, communities and schools. In addition, an archive of videos on environmental themes, as well as the "Integrated Program of Research and Technical Cooperation in the Baixada Fluminense" are located on the Campus.
