Information about the industry is the first step for a lasting relationship.
In 2013, BP Energy encouraged engagement with communities from seven municipalities in Bahia through an educational exhibition about the oil industry. Fishermen, pupils from local schools and the wider community visited the exhibition, called “A Trip through the World of Oil”, which spread knowledge using models, charts and interactive resources. More than 7 thousand people visited the exhibition in the seven municipalities. Students from 90 schools were impacted and 428 teachers were trained to convey the knowledge in the classroom. BP also produced a textbook on the theme, donating more than 4 thousand copies to public schools in the region. In 2014, the project received the "Seal IBEF Sustainability Award", a certification given to companies for their excellence in developing actions to promote sustainability.
