Children targeted in the practice of citizenship

Always deposited the children hope for a better world. If the adults are still resistant to learning new things and change their behavior for the common good, the children, are generally receptive to the teachings that reflect ethical and moral values capable of giving meaning to a more harmonious coexistence. On the basis of these values are the respect to each other and to nature. There is no doubt the role of the family in the formation of a child in order to make it a good citizen, an agent of change in his own half. But the school has a complementary and indissociable in this process, offering favourable conditions for the dissemination of learning, applied in a collective way, aiming to make the child see the extent of their actions and how they affect your family, your friends and the community. This way walk schools that bother to repost the students basic knowledge about the relationship man x nature, interdependent link between both, and what drives a company to achieve the balance advocated the idea of sustainability. In many of them, environmental education is treated as a cross-curricular program, discipline and conducted so playful and creative, in which the child has the opportunity to be the protagonist of an action that starts at the individual level and spreads in jail, in the social environment. Jasmine school in Belo Horizonte, is an example of who reaps the fruit planting. From the beginning, in 2001, she defined the Ecology as a cross-cutting issue to their didactic content. "For us, all education is environmental education. We cannot disassociate education from the place where it occurs and, much less, overlook the impacts of human action on the environment, and this on living beings, including humans, "says Fernando de Castro Fernandes, Director of the school. The trash is one of the recurring themes addressed within and outside the classroom. "Give children a reflection on nature, by means of the experience with the garbage and the understanding of the system garbage producer, is one of the goals of the project Ecology, Jasmine," says educator Renata Canaan, 1st Period teacher of early childhood education, basic education cycle. On 7 July, day students and teachers did a walk-demonstration outside the school to alert the community to the importance of reduce, reuse and recycle waste, and the basics: indicate the appropriate places for garbage disposal. Gabriel, of 5 years commented: "people should think before you throw the trash on the floor"; Daniel, 6 years, "was very nice Walkabout. The attention of the people to throw trash in the trash can is also taking care of our neighborhood. " And Izabela, 4 years, outbid: "If people don't take care of the garbage, the garbage will become a big monster".
