The feedback section of this issue of PLA notes is a response to 'Introducing PRA techniques in the learning of environmental education in Southern Peru' by Sonia Gomez Garcia and Jose Pizarro Neyra ( see PLA notes No. 40, pp13-17). The author argues that for environmental education to make a difference, it must be based on participatory activities to solve the real problems of the school and surrounding communities from which pupils are drawn. The Arya Vedic School in Nairobi, Kenya is given as a working example of this.
