How to protect the Amazon

How to protect the Amazon | Geoflorestas | Scoop.it

The Amazon is a peculiar ecosystem. It is useless to import ideas and merely adapt them to the local conditions. The information must be produced from the Amazonian realities themselves. However, the mistakes have been produced from times of old. In elementary education, for instance, a curriculum homogenized with that of the rest of the country is maintained, which ends up displacing children from their environment and culture.

 

In addition, in higher levels of the school chain, there is a predominant lack of programs for the formation of masters and doctorates in areas that are absolutely essential to the region, such as naval engineering, transport engineering and biochemistry, among others.
