Natureza e Saúde - Nature and Health: Education Points
Explain your idea in details:
The central objective of my idea is that University students from all over Brazil participate in groups and together with professors and researchers they elaborate lectures, contents and ebooks that are made available to the community. Initially a national selection would be carried out, where students, researchers, and teachers focused on the areas of Health and Education, could apply to participate in the groups, the selected ones grouped in groups of 6 to 10 people, the goal is for 10 groups to be formed which can be composed of people from different places in Brazil. This whole process would be carried out by a formed group, this would be responsible for directing the smallest groups in the activities that must be developed, all the materials developed are intended to educate a population to adopt a way of life focused on preventive health, explaining, how prevention is a sustainable method that respects nature.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
With the dissemination of educational materials and on-site / online lectures, and communication between the scientific community from different locations, we hope that people's lives can be impacted. The teaching of preventive health is extremely scarce in Brazil, medicine of general prevalence is not practiced by Brazilians, often due to the difficulty of access to education, and the result of this are great impacts on public health and private, with the largest number of patients consequently, several professionals even more affected by work overloads, in addition, as the number of patients increases, the greater the amount of hospital waste generated, causing impacts on public health and the environment. In addition, communication between students, professors / researchers should be encouraged, in order that scientific projects can be practiced The evaluation will be carried out by means of feedbacks made by the people who are receiving the content, talking about how the project brought changes to their life, so that a statistical evaluation can be carried out, it is necessary that some groups of people selected at random and make themselves available to participating in the lectures and reading the materials, take place over a period of one year, by means of identification, analyzing, how the thinking and the way of life these individuals were modified or not, through preventive education .
Plans for implementation and sustainability
For the project to be implemented, it is necessary to have people who are willing to participate and work voluntarily. For the realization of events and the production of physical materials, there must be financial support from public or private institutions, support from people focused on the development of technological platforms that should be willing to help. It is necessary to achieve goals for the groups and that these can be completed in a specific period. The help of people who are willing to give lectures to a population. In financial terms, the project needs to be supported so that there are drawings for books, short courses and other elements that contribute to teaching. Health professionals can join the project with the aim of giving tips on health, an objective of preventing the development of comorbidities. In addition, financial support is required if someone from the national group needs to move to regional groups.
