The Mediation of Environmental Education Facili- ties of the Atlantic Axis in the relation between Community-Diet and Climate Change

Sara Costa Carvalho, Pablo Angel Meira Cartea, Ulisses Miranda Azeiteiro

Abstract


Current patterns of food consume have high in uence on Climate Change (CC), which has an ongoing “Mediterranization” pattern in the north of Iberian Peninsula. Since the change of behavior is the most critical component in this matter and being diet patterns one of the aspects in which personal decisions most can in uence this change, it is important that resources such as the Environmental Education Facilities (EEF) act at a community level. This project aims to promote the EEF as mediators between CC-food patterns and the local communities, within the Euro Region of Eixo Atlântico (Galicia, Spain and the Northern Portugal). Throughout a methodology of investigation-action (I-A) and using three levels of EEF – a pilot EEF, a restrict set of EEF, and a wider set of EEF – it will be developed a sociopedagogical intervention. The rst two levels will participate in groups of I-A and all the levels will have training courses. It is expected that this projects leads to an e ective change of behavior among citizens and communities concerning CC.
