Collection volume 7 of PROCAM for a praxis of empowerment: diversity and cooperation for sustainability


In this seventh volume of the collection of dissertations and theses of PROCAM, the fourteen texts establish a dialogue with contemporaneity. Its focus is on the themes of participatory management, in the issues of rights of citizenship, in education for sustainability, in cooperative practices and socio-environmental responsibility and in logics of negotiation. These can be systematized as approaches that understand that socio-environmental development is a means to reach sustainability characterizing a portrait of the evolution of the environmental debate. The set of dissertations and theses defended at PROCAM between 2008 and the second semester of 2009 show a very original mosaic that considers the debate of the issues that are part of the themes included in the researches at PROCAM. These aggregate themes as: participative socio-environmental management, transformations in the agricultural logics and impacts in ecosystems, judicial measures and control of contaminated areas, issues related to conflict negotiation, empowerment, and respect for diversity and cooperation between socio-environmental actors and education for sustainability. All these themes can be summoned as social development as a means to reach sustainability. The texts in its totality have the authorship of orienting and their mentors, and in some cases include also their co-counselors. (AU)
