"Popular environmental education is a political-pedagogical process that goes beyond methodological aspects and involves the understanding of life by the people.
It is an appropriation process that seeks to organize subjects in a way to enable political advocacy work. We refer to these as "collective subjects"", said activist Juan Francisco Santos, of the Center for Education and Promotion of Sustainable Development in Cuba (CEPRODESO).
According to Santos, "what matters is not the concept, but people experiencing this appropriation from their points of view and experiences".
“Therefore, popular environmental education is a collective building process; it involves the capacity building of political subjects in permanent dialogue with their practice and the rest of the realities of the context or territories they belong to", adds a video produced by "Desde Abajo" (www.desdeabajo.info) and supported by CEPRODESO and the environmental organization CENSAT Agua Viva – Friends of the Earth Colombia.
On April 15-16, in Bogota, Colombian capital city, the two groups organized a
workshop on popular environmental education, which resulted in the new video.
Environmental activist Danilo Urrea, of CENSAT, states in the video that "popular environmental education schools, or schools of sustainability, aim to join the territorial defense processes in a more permanent way".
In this sense, "popular environmental education, as stated by the developers of this practice, involves trying to recompose the relationship between human beings and nature".
Friends of the Earth Latin America and the Caribbean (ATALC) has been organizing an annual capacity-building school for several years, called the "School of Sustainability". This is an itinerant school, and CENSAT has been a fundamental actor in its creation and development.
Urrea believes that popular environmental education also seeks to "present an education model that is against domination and the models that only reproduce exercises to control the population".
"Popular environmental education, in turn, aims to understand nature as an integral part of our lives and ourselves as part of nature, and therefore, strengthen the defense of our territories"
La prisión política del expresidente brasileño y líder del PT, Luiz Inácio Lula Da Silva, marcó la agenda de movilizaciones populares esta semana, exigiendo su libertad inmediata. En Mil Voces analizamos la coyuntura y compartimos una cobertura especial de la concentración frente a la Embajada de Brasil en Uruguay.
En esta edición de Voz Campesina, programa especial de la Coordinadora Latinoamericana de Organizaciones del Campo (CLOC-Vía Campesina) y Radio Mundo Real (Amigos de la Tierra Internacional), recuperamos las movilizaciones del Mes de la Mujer, así como del Encuentro Internacional de las Mujeres que Luchan realizado en Chiapas, México.
