Resumo: Increasing the scientific knowledge of the population through education is a developmentstrategy towards a sustainable future. However, there is no equity in the access to science educationand scientific knowledge. The aim of this paper is to present and analyse a science kit named “Energy,Environment and Sustainability” (KEAS). Based on research conducted in Guinea-Bissau, it exploresstrategies to promote science education for a sustainable future. The strengths and limitations ofthe KEAS were studied using different data collection methods, including interviews, observation,survey, focus groups and document analysis. The participants were teacher trainers from the Guinea-Bissau School of Education. It is concluded that the KEAS is a feasible and suitable teaching strategyappropriate to the context, having the potential to contribute to learning about the environment andsustainability. Further, it addresses real problems for which students should acquire knowledge andskills in order to be able to make informed choices.
