The Eco-Schools Program in Portuguese Educational Communities: Affordances and Constraints to the Development of Competencies for Action

Graduated in Sociology from ISCTE-IUL, Master of Science from the London School of Economics and Political Science. Today she is a PhD candidate in the Inter-University PhD Program in Sociology, by ICS.

Her research will analyze the International Environmental Education Program ‘Eco-Schools’ in Portugal, which aims to promote sustainable school management policies and a pedagogy of knowledge co-produced and transdisciplinary. It is intended to understand the reality of the Portuguese Program, at the level of the NGO and the School Schools and Communities that promote it to investigate the factors that constrain and nourish the development of competencies for sustainable action in the educational communities.
