Overall aims of the centre
Promoting environmental education for environmental protection in complex society and nature, that is, consider your region and vegetation type, but with emphasis on the cultural aspects of the region.
We work with human rights and social justice, and ecological rights and environmental conflicts. Art and communication combine the educational process that considers environmental philosophy.
Description of the centre
We are not an environmental education centre but a federal university with about 20,000 students.
These regional pages are designed to help you find local partners, update on projects and share best practice and experience. The regions are by continent, but of course you are welcome to have a look and see what is happening outside of your region. The pages are constantly updated and we will send out alerts to the network when new content is added.
WLI partners are invited to submit their details and create their own ‘partner profile’ showing what they do, where they work and giving details that might be interesting or useful to other members of the network. To join and make a profile for your centre, please download a membership form, and send it back to us. Membership is free and we just ask that you take an active role in the network.
