Environmental Education

YAQU PACHA and Environmental Education in Species Conservation | We work not only in South America and Latin America to help endangered species, but also to make people aware of the importance of preserving nature.

Environmental education programs have been promoted by YAQU PACHA for many years in various countries (Brazil, Uruguay and Chile).

YAQU PACHA sees environmental education as the only and most sustainable way to anchor the idea of nature conservation in the population in the long term.

In recent decades, the situation of these people has deteriorated drastically. Dangers such as overfishing, bycatch and increasing contamination of the waters mean that their jobs are endangered in the long term.

The underlying strategy is to inspire people for the natural treasures of their own country through targeted information and the demonstration of natural relationships. In its practical implementation, environmental education must deal with local conditions and the social, cultural and economic living conditions of those affected. The main goal of the educational process is to encourage people to act through knowledge.

The environmental education concept includes various levels, such as lessons in schools, workshops with teachers, education in the fishing community and information events with the authorities.

We have already carried out an important project together with the government of Uruguay .

In Brazil, we work with the ECOLOGIA HUMANA DO OCEANO team in species conservation and support their work in environmental education with children and local people.

PROJECT 1 – "Ocean at School" and PROJECT 2 – "Digital Ocean"

Anthropic activities in the coastal and marine environment cause environmental impacts and the difficulty of managing these environments is discussed worldwide. As a result, scientific and social movements have emerged in recent decades, such as Ocean Culture and the Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, in addition to Goal 14 – Life in Water – of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

One of the cornerstones for the realization of the goals of these movements in environmental education is the dissemination of the importance of this environment for society. This process can be understood as scientific literacy that allows individuals to make connections with the world around them. In this context, the "Oceano na Escola" project aims to promote environmental awareness in public schools in the state of Espírito Santo in southeastern Brazil and the "Oceano Digital" project aims to promote digital scientific knowledge about ocean research among the public using social media.

Through the dissemination of knowledge, a stronger perception of the environment is developed in various social groups, creating a collective environmental identity of people as part of nature.
