OLIVEIRA, Maíra Gesualdo  e  CARVALHO, Luiz Marcelo de. Os projetos político-pedagógicos dos cursos de pedagogia e os temas ambientais: o caso das universidades federais brasileiras. Perspectiva [online]. 2012, vol.30, n.02, pp.445-472. ISSN 0102-5473.

Discussions about the environment and the possibilities and limits of the educational process in relation to environmental issues are evident in many social sectors. The development and promotion of studies, and the proposal of programs and actions related to the inclusion of environmental education in formal teaching indicate the range that this proposal has been gaining. In this regard, under the scope of the Educational Observatory Project CAPES/INEP/SECADI, we conducted research for a master’s degree that examined possible “curriculum greening” processes present in pedagogical policy projects (PPPs) for teacher education courses in Brazilian federal universities. The text presented here is a summary of this survey and details two environmental topics found in these projects: “Dimensions of EA” and “Development and Nature: some possibilities.” Based on documentary research and with the theoretical support of authors who have attempted to reflect on the meanings of environmental topics for contemporary societies and on critical proposals for environmental education, we explored the meanings attributed to these curriculum greening processes by analyzing the PPPs. We used the “production of meanings” proposal by Gomes and Nascimento (2006) as our key methodological reference. Several reflections on this data lead us to conclude that a number of environmental topics have been considered in these courses, which reveals curriculum greening movements and processes.
