Educação Ambiental: Um Itinerário Persistente e Crítico de Expansão de Cidadania

The aim of this article is to disclose the historical evolution of the concept and practice of Environmental Education through the study of its national and international roots, essential elements, principles and respective dimensions. The persistent processes of its ‘re-conceptualization’, within global environmental (public) policy, and the inherent ethical dimension of the environmental education towards sustainability are also challenges here necessarily taken into consideration.
