Instituto-E is an OSCIP (Civil Society Organization of Public Interest) which believes that sharing information is the first step towards achieving sustainable human development. The institute uses alternative communication and multimedia to stimulate the public to take action in the protection of the country's biodiversity, the right to information, the right to education and of Brazil's historical and cultural heritage. Instituto-E fulfills its mission by creating and managing a network that links different initiatives to social agents. The institute was born from ‘e-brigade’, an environmental activist movement that transforms concept into attitude. This movement takes action according to the six ideal “e”s: earth, environment, energy, education, empowerment and economics.
Instituto-E’s mission is to transform Brazil into a model of sustainable human development. This transformation will be carried out by the institute through the development and management of a network that links different initiatives and agents of social change.
