The Students' Group of Socio-Environmental Practices was created in 2017 in the municipality of Bocaina de Minas (MG) by teachers and students of the Alvaro Benfica Municipal School and the João Severo State School, with the partnership of volunteers - including former students and former teachers - to develop actions of interest for the socio-environmental development of the region that can be replicated in other municipalities.

The most specific and urgent objective of the project is to give young people the opportunity to prepare themselves to manage their municipality when they become adults, facing socio-environmental conditions that we already anticipate as especially difficult.
The focus of the practices prioritizes composting and school and urban agriculture, associated with environmental and ethics education.

This preparation for the future includes training in community management actions and participatory governance, such as needs assessment, project design, building coalitions, fundraising, volunteer work, leadership development, project monitoring and evaluation, entrepreneurship and income generation, reporting, communication, use of social networks, etc.
