Abstract

TOBASURA ACUNA, Isaías. AUGUSTO ÁNGEL MAYA: CONTRIBUTIONS FROM CALDAS TO THE COLOMBIAN ENVIRONMENTAL THOUGHT AND MOVEMENT. Luna Azul [online]. 2009, n.28, pp.57-67. ISSN 1909-2474.

Augusto Ángel Maya was born in Manizales in 1932, with a doctorate in History from the Gregorian University of Rome and Honoris Causa Doctorate in Environmental Education from the Guadalajara University of Mexico. He's one of the most important thinkers of the emergent environmental thought in Colombia. From his work as a professor, as an official of governmental institutions and international organisms, he's contributed to the consolidation of the environmental thought and movement in Colombia for the past 40 years. His contributions can be synthesized in two: theoretical and conceptual reflection in order to understand the environmental issues from a political, social and cultural perspective; and the creation of political work tools, such as environmental education and the support of the national organization of Environmental Movement MA. This work synthesizes part of this legacy.

Keywords : Ángel Maya; Environmental history; Environmental Thought; Environmentalism; Environmental Movement.
