RUMPUS in Amazon rainforest!

A major challenge in education across the world is to support the large number of less well-represented actors and territories towards a more scientific-literate society for sustainable development locally and globally.

With this purpose in mind,  the Rumpus team established a partnership with various organisations in Brazil and visited the Amazon Forest in November 2022 to implement an  open schooling initiative.

Partners of the OU – Open University UK were the UFAM – Federal University of Amazon, the UFCA – Federal University of Cariri,  and three NGOs: “Anjos Digitais” for digital and scientific inclusion with gender equity; IRAMA – Ribeirinhos Institute of the Amazon  and  REDDA – Reduction of Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation.
