ABOUT ESSÊNCIA DO AMBIENTE
«On June 5 of 2020, World Environment Day, Essência do Ambiente was born, a blog dedicated to the themes of the environment and sustainability with the aim of giving a stage and voice to sustainable projects and practices, contributing to awareness and behavioral change of children, youth and adults. And in order to mark a year of communicating good projects in the environmental area, we have prepared a moment of reflection which we invite you to join. The Conference: “Am I really green? A business and social reflection” will promote the sharing of experiences and bring to debate themes such as ecodesign, sustainable production, eco-events, the positioning of companies in the face of environmental challenges, the sustainable use of resources, the challenges and opportunities of digital in environmental awareness, territorial planning and the future of environmental education. We will also highlight environmental projects that made a difference for their social contribution.
We are all agents of change – citizens, companies, institutions – but only with the implementation of a collective effort can we achieve a truly more sustainable future.»
