Strengthening relationships in the TP community to recognize, confront and solve environmental conflicts related to the oil and gas industry

The experiment reported here was developed to contribute for the transformation of the community “Terminal Pesqueiro” (CTP) into a community with a critical view about environmental issues. At the end of the project, CTP began to show signs of mobilization and organization because the project helped to awaken a sense of belonging to the locality. The project promoted educational efforts to stimulate social participation in public decision-making, and started a discussion on the environmental impacts driven by economic growth in the region. It is worth noting that the actions of the project brought the recognition of CTP to be included in the municipal map.
