Virtual Seminar provides training on books, reading and literature

Aeris Energy and the Ministry of Tourism present a project that offers free training for educators between August 24 and 28.
Social responsibility actions contribute to improve reading rates in a country where the annual average of books read per inhabitant does not reach five per year and the practice is only the tenth in preference for leisure activities, according to a survey by the Brazilian Book Chamber. In this context, actions to encourage the training of readers become even more fundamental in Brazil. From August 24 to August 28, five free virtual seminars for educators are offered by the Winds of Knowledge project. Entries can be made by


Aeris Energy, a company located in the Pecém Complex, sponsors the project that carries out the activities that are part of the second stage of the initiative, which has delivered, since 2019, eight libraries equipped in public schools in Caucaia, benefiting about four thousand children. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the activities that at first would be for educators in the municipality, were expanded to other stakeholders with remote realization. 

Social Transformation

The directors of Winds of Knowledge believe that democratizing access to books and reading, training good readers, improving reading proficiency and strengthening writing and argumentation skills can help to train citizens who are increasingly better able to improve their lives, that of the family and that of the community in which they live.

Winds of Knowledge is a project presented by the Ministry of Tourism and Aeris, in partnership with Instituto Seara, Ação Humanitária, D'grau Produções and the Education Department of Caucaia. It is a realization of Invento Produções Culturais, the Special Secretariat for Culture and the Ministry of Tourism, sponsored by Aeris, via the Federal Law for Cultural Incentives.
