Social Mapping and Environmental Education: Dialogues from Participatory Mapping in the Pantanal, Mato Grosso, Brazil
Silva, Regina; Jaber, Michelle; Sato, Michèle
Environmental Education Research, v24 n10 p1514-1526 2018
This article illustrates the steps taken to enact a new methodology for participatory social mapping by the Environmental Education, Communications and the Arts (GPEA) Research Group of the Federal University of Mato Grosso (UFMT). The aim of Social Mapping is to record the identities, territories and socio-environmental conflicts experienced by social groups, based on their own namings and narratives, rather than relying on those more typically generated or provided by researchers or theorists. As such, it offers an important dialogical pathway for environmental education practices, in that it highlights the intrinsic relationship between culture and nature, and reinforces the understanding that the loss of one implies the disappearance of the other.
