AMAZON ACADEMY TEACHES

immersive formations developed to disseminate and debate topics related to sustainability

Prepare people for the economic, social and ecological challenges of the 21st century, with the Amazon as a space for research, experience and learning. This is the proposal of the Academia Amazônia Ensina (AAE), an initiative of Original Trade, a company incubated at INPA, dedicated to the development of innovation for sustainability. 

Created in September 2018 from the idea of preparing students and professionals for the new skills of the future, AAE offers the Amazon Expeditions 21, immersive training developed to disseminate and debate topics related to sustainability. 

“I understand that education is impacted by the new reality of students that the digital world has forged. There is a lot of innovation and adjustments in the educational context and I want to believe that experimentation and experience combined with virtualization resources are the way to be explored", explains the director of the AAE, João Tezza, director of the AAE.

“The Amazon offers an incredible sensory experience, associated with a profusion of scientific experiences related to sustainability, biodiversity conservation and ecosystem services”, complements.
