The research aims to develop teaching activities to contribute to the Environmental Education of the future Agricultural Engineer at the Municipal University Center (CUM) Sagua de Tánamo, based on the most up-to-date knowledge about existing environmental problems. The practical contribution is given in the proposal of educational activities of an environmental nature that involve productive entities, peasants and the family itself with the collaboration of community organizations and institutions. Its practical significance consists in the possibility of implementation by teachers to promote environmental training in students of this career, from the Chemistry discipline, contributing to a greater preparation to face the existing environmental problems in the territory. The scientific novelty lies in the conception used when planning teaching activities, to actively involve various members of the community in the development of the production process, which will allow to obtain encouraging results in the teaching-learning process. Theoretical, empirical, experimental methods and documentary review were used. Its practical significance consists in its comprehensive application from a systemic, humanistic and integrating approach to transform the modes of action of students and affects their training.
