Abstract

This study aimed to investigate environmental education (EE) in the initial training of teachers of chemistry. The data were based on documentary analysis of the political pedagogical project of the Chemical Education course, the syllabus of school subjects, questionnaires and interviews with students. The resulting diagnosis explicitly shows little evidence of concern over inclusion of EE in teacher training. Beginner students showed representations centered on recycling and awareness. More advanced students had representations on sustainability and awareness, while the graduating students showed representations centered on pollution and awareness. In general, the representations involved awareness for environmental preservation. (AU)
