Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to present a summary of the state of the art/literature review on the relevance of geobotanical heritage and environmental education in strategies to exploit the territory and promote a new territorial culture. It also explains their practical application through an example (Mata do Sobral) in the Coimbra Region (Central Portugal). In the case of a preliminary approach, this note reflects the authors’ participation in the planning and/or implementation of actions to control and eradicate invasive flora in the area, raising and environmental education, involving the school community and the community in general, with the support of Operational Programme Sustainability and Efficiency in the Use of Resources (POSEUR).
