The Knowledge Exchange Project aims to strengthen the juvenile prominence through engagement in environmental conservation and improvement in the quality of life of the communities and reserves where they live. Each year (edition) is defined a theme that stimulates the reflection about the reality which they’re inserted. In 2014, the theme was Juvenile Prominence, Leadership and Entrepreneurship. In total, 109 students of five CUs are orientated to develop collective projects about the theme.
The students with better performance in the evaluation of these projects are selected to participate of an exchange trip with other students from different CUs and from schools and Universities from Manaus. The encounters last a week and take place in Manaus. From 2012 t0 2014, over 100 youths participated of the encounters. The Project is result of a partnership between FAS and the State Secretary of Education of Amazonas (Seduc).
