Environmental Education makes possible experiences, dialogues, experience exchange and broadens the observation and relationship with the world. Know how to listen to the birds and wake up with their songs. Sit in the shade of the mother plant of the restinga and understand the interactions between the plants and the animals that enable the formation of bushes. Slowly observe the kiss of the bird on the bromeliad flower. Follow the footsteps of the animals and find an “indian mouse”. Imagine the roots spreading through the grains of the restinga in search of water, promoting associations with fungi and small animals. To be frightened by the disappearance of the teiú lizard, swallowed by the voracious jaw of its predator. All of these are life experiences.
 
The role of Environmental Education is to promote these infinite possibilities of meeting nature and creating spaces for the exchange of experiences in a horizontal way. As Paulo Freire, patron of Brazilian education, said, “there is no more knowing, or knowing less, there is different knowledge”. In the same way, Boaventura de Souza Santos (2010, 53) offers us paths along the path of knowledge, when confronting the “monoculture of modern science with an ecology of knowledge”. For him, the “ecology of knowledge” brings the idea of ​​the diversity of knowledge about the world. Mia Couto, African biologist and storyteller, comes in different dimensions to introduce the characters of the earth.
Parque Nacional da Restinga de Jurubatiba brings a diversity of possibilities of interactions with the different knowledge. There are quilombolas, settlers, fishermen, farmers, children and ancestors, who share the same territory. Thinking about a Freirean environmental cinema that seeks dialogue and exercises close listening is the inspiring basis for the films of the “Personagens do Parque Nacional da Restinga de Jurubatiba” project executed in the PELD Site 5.
 
Films that tell the stories of people with the territory of the Conservation Unit (UC) and bring knowledge and experiences to be shared in the training of undergraduate students in Biological Sciences and Postgraduate in Environmental Sciences and Conservation. In this proposal of meeting, they are teachers and experience a space of interaction to produce something in common, a writing with images. Films that function as field research, which stimulate theoretical reflections in the form of academic writings, presented at congresses, published in the form of scientific articles and books. Films that educate, which are used in schools, universities, online courses of the Ministry of the Environment and that break political boundaries through the network.
 
Until October 2017, ten films were produced by PELD Sítio 5, which present different relations in the UC, such as memory, the right to fish, economic and legal disputes, the struggle for the right to housing, the role of science in the study of biodiversity, environmental education and conflict relations in the territory.
The proposal in 2018 and 2019 is to create new language formats, seeking interaction with the beings (human and non-human) that inhabit and transit through the natures of the Park. Other aspects of Environmental Education are stimulated by PELD Sitio 5, as the opening of the university for guided visitation actions aimed at disseminating the biodiversity of the northern region of Rio de Janeiro.
 
The elaboration of didactic-scientific material by researchers involved in the project, such as the publication of a book with consolidated results, aiming at a synthesis of the knowledge produced in the last decades of PELD Sitio 5 activity, could subsidize the management of the Conservation Unit and expand information about this important project.
 
Scientific divulgation
 
In Brazil and in the World, University and Society are increasingly interconnected through bridges of knowledge. In addition to stimulating diversity in academia and bringing scientists and teachers closer to practical reality, this connection also engages the citizen to take his place in the process of building scientific knowledge. Thus, actions for a participatory, collaborative or citizen science are quite common in projects, especially those related to biological diversity, where the citizen with his daily choices is an important actor. In order for this role to be well played, citizens must have the means, such as exhibitions and educational workshops, to raise awareness and awareness of their role in the environment in which they live. It is the scientific dissemination that stimulates the learning, the valorization of the knowledge and the sense of responsibility of the citizens.
 
In relation to national parks, scientific dissemination is the main tool for communication between natural and human spaces: park officials and advisers, local communities, the scientific community and the general public. In relation to the Parque Nacional da Restinga de Jurubatiba several actions have been carried out by NUPEM / UFRJ-Macaé aiming at scientific dissemination. It can be mentioned as main actions:
Projeto Ecolagoas, a long-standing partnership with Petrobras that aimed at the continuing education of primary and secondary school teachers in the region;
Scientificarte Project, which since 2007 carries out through play, artistic and cultural workshops, disseminates scientific knowledge about the biological diversity of the region for the children and young people of the region. As an example, the workshop of puppet theater that told the story "Scientificarte's Journey through the Kingdom of Dark and Clear Waters", a reference to Monteiro Lobato's work and the clear and dark waters of the different lagoons of Parna Jurubatiba.
Environmental Film Research Collective (CUCA), which organizes audiovisual workshops and produces films about the “traditional knowledge” of Parque Nacional da Restinga de Jurubatiba, with actors and producers as the park's own population and the researchers and students of NUPEM / UFRJ-Macaé.
Science Space of NUPEM, inaugurated in 2008, originally funded by FAPERJ through the publication "Dissemination and Popularization of Science and Technology in the State of Rio de Janeiro", is an important non-formal space for environmental education, mainly conservation and ecology concepts of the region's coastal ecosystems, as well as disseminating the scientific research and biological diversity of Parque Nacional da Restinga de Jurubatiba, among other ecosystems in the region.
Thus mechanisms for environmental education and scientific dissemination of the PELD Site 5 have been expanded and shared around this important ecosystem of our region.
