world day of environmental education

On January 26, the «World Environmental Education Day». But really, does the planet deserve to have a day on the calendar? Our rulers have the purpose of raising awareness and raise awareness citizens about the importance of conserving and protecting the planet, for this reason in 1975, the year in which the International Seminar on Environmental Education was organized in Belgrade, the principles of environmental education drawn up in the famous «Belgrade Charter».

environmental education It consists of the process in which a person assimilates and learns concepts about the teaching of the functioning of natural environments so that human beings can adapt to them without harming nature.

Like all education, it is not enough to assimilate it and learn it if we do not then put it into practice. There are different components on environmental education as: awareness and sensitivity, knowledge and understanding, dexterity environment skills, but in the end, the most important is the stake to be able to identify and contribute to solving environmental challenges.

Throughout the last fifty years, environmental education has been recycling and adapting to the needs of the planet, but without losing sight of the two main objectives: awareness and participation. The last decade that we have just left, the environmental impact has been very present in our day to day, seeing how the need for action has become more important.

environmental education is key to achieving a better future and from Defeder we consider it as an education for the sustainable development and circular economy. We are a company committed to environment and Defeder's mission is to end the problem of punished lands, among other. If the educational system is reconsidered, better sustainable models can be achieved both economically and socially.
