The success of any environmental management requires the active participation of the community that should be involved in the awareness and solution of environmental problems, which can only be achieved through environmental education. This research takes as a case study the city of Arequipa, Peru to, firstly, understand the gap between the environmental education provided nationwide by the Ministry of Education and the lack of awareness of local problems by university students. Secondly, to analyze the methodological framework for the development of the Environmental Atlas of Arequipa, as an educational tool to fill-up that gap. Finally, a strategy for the use of the atlas a massive urban-environmental education tool in Arequipa will be proposed.
