This article aims at approaching some aspects of the origins and advances made in environmental education within the context of a doctoral program about the environment and development, at UFPR (Federal University of Paraná). We tried to present the initial ideas that, having led to others, allowed us to set up the doctoral program’s interdisciplinary content, the project, the teaching plan with its first adjustments, the socio-environmental and educational contents developed for teaching and carrying out research. Theepistemology of environmental education privileged the construction of knowledge at a time when the world, the environment, and education are swinging between modernity and post-modernity. It is inferred that environmental education presents an emerging production of knowledge and that science, facing the new trends, addresses the complexities of the world and the environmental complexities in an interdisciplinary way.
