MENDES et al. The ecological engagement in the context of an amazon river village. Interam. j. psychol. [online]. 2008, vol.42, n.1, pp. 1-10. ISSN 0034-9690.

The ecological engagement presupposes a continuous involvement between researchers and the participants in the context where the investigation occurs. However, in some field researchers there are inherent operational problems that complicate the ceaseless contact of the researchers and that configure themselves as a methodological challenge. This article presents the strategies used for ecological engagement of a researchers team in an Amazon river context at Marajó island. It will be discussed the following aspects: a) the formation of the researchers team and the collective construction of knowledge; b) the contact with the informer, his role and the description of one strategy for a data collection through the techniques of photographies and c) the use of the sociodemographic inventory (SDI) as an element of collection and ecological engagement.

Keywords : Biotechnological Model; Context; River Village.
