ABSTRACT > The record participation highlights the growing interest for the Environment and makes this unique event a reference forum in the Environmental Education field. It was supported by international institutions, such as UNESCO, UNEP, ISESCO, the Federation for the Environmental Education (FEE), whose highest delegates came to participate in the Congress’ works.

Structured in plenary sessions and thematic niches, the Congress’ works analysed all the different aspects of the Environmental Education, showing how this is the key to abandon a development model which is at the end of its rope!
