Environmental Education and Training

 

The current programme of the Regional Government of Madeira will support the development of initiatives at an international, national and regional level that contribute to the integration of ‘Education for a Sustainable Development’ at the different levels of society and in particular, in all types of teaching; as well as continuing the environmental programmes already underway, namely, Eco-Schools, Young Reporters for the Environment, Blue Flag, Green Keys and Eco XXI.

Another initiative focused on sensitisation and environmental education corresponds to the Environmental Education Programme for 1st Cycle Basic Education Schools of Porto Santo (PEA), sponsored by the local City Council since 1998. This initiative, involving students of the 1st cycle of Basic Education, aims to let students know about their natural heritage, as well as promoting good environmental practices through the presentation of solutions to be adapted on a daily basis to make Porto Santo more sustainable from an environmental point of view.

This Municipality has also developed awareness and information programmes for the residents, throughout the year, including the commemoration of events in the area of the environment, with activities directed towards the community in general and towards young school children, in order to involve the whole population. Its role in the training and environmental component has shown to be fundamental through the realisation of periodical training activities aimed at the school community and other target-public like tourist guides.

PEA Porto Santo

The intention of the Biosphere Reserve of the Island of Porto Santo is to affirm itself and its own entity, with defined strategies and objectives that promote the defining values of Porto Santo and its people.
