The paper presents some considerations about the theoretical field of Environmental Gerontology, with a brief overview of the classical themes of study and application of the new fields opened up by the demands of population aging and public policy issues arising. The text also seeks to highlight the increase in the international academic field production, but not together in the national production. It highlights the importance of environmental outlook for the practical actions of the professional gerontologist in tasks of care management, services and policies in the field of aging and aging processes.
