Paper Title:
Environmental Education and Energetic Efficiency: Reports on Brazilian Projects in the Sake of Socio-Environmental Sustainability
  Abstract

The goal of this work is to describe the importance of environmental education in the energy conservation and energy efficiency process. Besides the various technical proposals aimed at minimizing energy waste, environmental education has been a primordial tool in the search of a more responsible character with respect to the environment. This article attempts at showing some reflections concerning the role environmental education plays in that process, as well as putting in evidence the educational actions of the National Program for Energy Conservation, with its emphases in diminishing the energy waste and pull towards its efficient use.
