QEM— Quinta Ecológica da Moita, ASPEA

ORGANISATION BACKGROUND AND LOCAL CONTEXT

ASPEA (Associação Portuguesa de Educação Ambiental) is an Envi-ronmental non-governmental organisation aimed at developing envi-ronmental education at the formal and non-formal levels. ASPEA implements several actions in its headquarters in Lisbon and in the five local offices around the country, namely: i) seminars and continuing training courses for teachers and environment monitors; ii) collabora-tion with municipalities; iii) research in the field of environmental edu-cation. "Quinta Ecológica da Moita" (QEM) emerges thanks to a part-nership between Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Aveiro (SCMA) and ASPEA with the purpose of energizing Environmental Education activi-ties in Moita's Forest.
