The Environmental Education Program is aimed at the general public, with a focus on educating the local community and foreign visitors in the Algarve. Individually or in partnership with others, we carry out activities with the following objectives:
Provide the participants with knowledge and skills that value their own knowledge and experience,
Bring together teachers and educators from the scientific community, helping them in approaches, methodologies and dissemination of scientific projects,
Awaken teachers to the possibilities of scientific applications with their students,
Raise awareness of the importance of field trips in their recreational, relational and educational components,
Contribute to changing attitudes and behaviours, leading to a more sustainable and environmentally friendly lifestyle.
A ROCHA Portugal started its Environmental Education Program in 1991.
