Producing educational videos on permaculture in rural schools

There are 600 rural schools in Minas Gerais, none of which are considered to provide a “rural education” to its students. As the schools are structured after urban schools, youth do not learn about the existing life opportunities in their rural communities. As a result these youth leave to live in the peripheral communities of large cities.

The Centro Popular de Cultura e Desenvolvimento (CPCD), in partnership with the Meninos de Araçuaí cinema, will coordinate an educational video series about permaculture to be shown to youth and school teachers at rural schools in Minas Gerais.

With support from BrazilFoundation the Association aims to:

•Produce educational videos about permaculture;
•Share information about healthy lifestyles;
•Share socio-environmental technologies for youth in rural schools;
• Improve teaching methods and educational material in rural schools.
