Abstract(s)Financial restrictions on higher education have affected diverse study areas and their effects can be considered particularly negative for those subjects that require fieldwork, as is the case of Geology. Under these circumstances, the recourse to local features will be especially valuable. In this work are presented some examples that are potentially interesting for the teaching of Environmental Geology and that concern observations of local geology and built structures. Examples of observations of local geology include outcrops exposed by weathering and erosion as well as expositions resulting from human interventions. The later could allow the study of portions not available otherwise and, potentially, in a 4D (space + time) perspective (this includes the creation of conditions that favour the observation of dynamic situations such as mass movements or groundwater variations). The study of geologic materials and analogues of geological processes in built structures might help to overcome some of the limitations of local geology and can also be considered as relevant geological studies in the context of the Anthropocene
