Environmental Governance and Citizen Participation in Colombia: The Experience of the Environmental Education Committees
This presentation addresses the areas of communication for social change, environmental education/governance and citizen empowerment. It aims at appraising the impacts of a public and social development policy on citizen mobilization and development planning, through environmental governance practices, in a context characterized by conflicts and social violence. It demonstrates how the implementation of a National Policy on Environmental Education in Colombia (acronym: NPEE), during the period of 1995-2000, has contributed to catalyze community dialogue, citizen participation and collective actions within communities, through the practices of environmental education projects. The particular experience of the Departmental Inter Institutional Committees on Environmental Education (acronym: DICEE) will be highlighted, since they contribute to the construction of environmental citizenship by involving both institutional and non-institutional actors referred to as “agents of change” in different regions of Colombia. These agents represent catalysts for the creation of new public spaces where environmental education experiences allow for interaction and decision-making to happen around community projects oriented more toward knowledge sharing rather than toward the mere expression of vested interests.
