Environmental Education

Our Environmental Education Programme connects rural communities of Northeastern Brazil and everyone around the world with our Caatinga. It creates awareness of the issues impacting this biome from which we all benefit, as well as it takes actions to improve and preserve that.

We share essential knowledge, allowing all of us to develop attitudes which generate responsibility towards sustainable living. Our programme offers the skills we need to be creative problem solvers and become good environmental citizens.
