Why is it important?

This editorial presents a collection of papers on environmental education research in Brazil which highlights the effects of social and political backdrops and current issues, the unique environments on which environmental education is grounded, and how environmental education research, in turn, may echo or influence particular educational and public policies.


Brazilian environmental education research is not usually published in English and therefore has limited reach in Anglo-speaking countries. This collection brings a snapshot of specific research projects conducted in the country and concerns with the effects of language and visibility, and with democratic values and equality locally to globally.
