Abstract

The diversity of knowledge and views that different academic backgrounds and professional experiences converge, promote dialogue, reflection, a complex integrated discussion of the themes, and enrich knowledge and research on an individual scale, working groups and organizations. Thus, a group of five representants of different organizations and forms of knowledge, are part of the project Environmental Communitarian Education: collaborative actions to an integral sustainable coastal development. The group joins together, in a format that promotes the “drifting” of ideas resulting from the dialogue on collaboration and sustainability, seeking to implement these ideas in individual and group practices. The methodology of the meetings, using participatory dynamics that promote holistic development, aims at the participation of all, the confrontation of ideas, reflection, sharing of knowledge, and learn-ing, enhancing the community education that each one carries within. This article intends to make known the role of Environmental Communitarian Education for collective critical thinking, and generator of concrete actions, as well as the procedural methodology of the meetings. The process reveals the relevance of a high sense of belonging of the group members, which results in individual learning and in sharing different knowledge.
