Pedagogical Tool:

The Percussucata Project aims to raise awareness among students, teachers, and school communities about the importance of building a society based on sustainable living. The project promotes concrete actions to increase awareness about the pollution generated by domestic waste produced by each family. Additionally, it seeks to promote understanding that each citizen plays a crucial role in the processes of recycling and social inclusion of collectors of recyclable materials and waste collectors.

Mission, Vision, Commitment...

The Percussucata Project is a cultural and pedagogical tool in favor of preserving the environment and, consequently, life. Since 2007, it merges music, citizenship and environmental education to build ecological subjects in students from

Early Years of Elementary School.


It is an eco-art-educational initiative by Professor, Musician, Environmentalist and Writer Marcelo Capucci and collaborating activists.

Socioenvironmental Literature

Different names and ordinary people who manage to create a revolution wherever they go. "I do, I separate, I transform..." features a teacher and a student who change themselves and inspire everyone around them to live better with garbage, nature, and the people around them, including the so-called invisible everyday beings such as recyclable material collectors and street sweepers. The director, school cleaning staff, family members, neighbors, friends, and teachers - in short, everyone - is part of the story.


Awarded at the ILBA - International Latino Book Awards in the Best Children's Picture category, originally in Portuguese in 2016, this modern, creative, interdisciplinary book shows that the environment starts at home, and that we can only improve the planet through the actions of each individual. A story that can motivate and inspire people of all ages.
