Abstract
The obtained results at the studies previously made on the Pati Cua basin (Eldorado, province of Misiones), reveal a slow deforestation of the Paranaense Forest (Atlantic Forest); with the aggravating of the biodiversity loss and the elimination of the protective forests, which turns into a severe warning about the quality of the water, due to anthropic activities. After seeing this panorama, the need for address the problem emerged and there were made several necessary actions in order to make people aware of it, and to reestablish the environmental balance; working side by side with the people and institutions inserted at the geographical space of the basin. Into the main objectives for this Environmental Education´ project, it is the one about to encourage an interinstitutional approaching for the environmental education linking University – Schools – Municipality and Neighborhood Commissions. The lines of actions were: masterly classes at schools, replanting of several native species at the stream coasts, and an active participation in schools´ Science Fairs, among others. And of all the obtained results, it is remarkable the continuous formation of the teachers and students facing the problematic; the elaboration of educative material; several distinctions at the Science Fairs; implantation of essays about native species at the stream coasts; the commitment of the neighborhood commissions for the protection of the forests; and the continuation of the exhibitions concerning environmental education. As a conclusion, it is affirmed that the actions done generated a high commitment level by every intervenient sector. Of the students involved, it is remarkable their determination to continuing the lines of action; as for their teachers, it is notable their permanent formation and approaching on the environmental topic into the curricular contents.
