MARTINEZ PACHECO, Martha Isabel  and  CARBALLO CARRILLO, Lisa. Rural Environmental Teaching in Basic General Education. Educare [online]. 2013, vol.17, n.2, pp.69-79. ISSN 1409-4258.

This paper, based  on  the  Nicaraguan  and  Belizean contexts, points  out  the  need  of providing  environmental  education  to  students  from the  1st to 6th grades of the  Basic  General Education to ensure that young generations will live in harmony with nature, which will depend on their healthy practices to protect the planet. For this, we attempt to stimulate the interest of teachers  to create environmental  teaching/learning strategies  in an organized, planned, conscious  way to raise students’ awareness and love for their culture and community, and for students to aspire to live in healthy homes. This way, students  will succeed in the coexistence experience, in the material and spiritual cultures, and in the economic and development areas.

Keywords : Environmental education; sustainable development; community participation; Nicaragua; Belize.
