On World Environmental Education Day, celebrated every year on January 26, the
Municipality of Baião reaffirms its commitment to building a more sustainable future by
creating a Municipal Environmental Education Strategy.
On September 25, 2015, the United Nations approved the Sustainable Development

and valuing the territory – the Municipal Environmental Education Strategy (EMEA) is

certifying Baião as a Sustainable Tourist Destination.

with a view to creating an active, aware and informed citizenry, empowering children
and young people, but also civil society, economic agents and institutions by promoting
local actions with a global impact, from a “Think global, act local” perspective.
The strategy is available for public consultation here.
