We are very happy to be working on a new friendship and engagement with Chile. After a few years of ongoing discussion, we are heading off in September to Santiago, , Gorbea, Currarehue, and Valdivia.
Understanding the rich cultural traditions and history of the Mapuche in Santiago, we’ll head to Gorbea village to take part in a local agricultural group meeting in Freire, a youth & social enterprise discussion in Pitrufquen, and a renewables and climate change discussion in Campo. We’ll be accommodated in farm stays and Ruka of the traditional Mapuches, spend time in the Chilean forest and be hosted by the welcoming local communities.
This will be an exciting new journey for CERES Global, join us in learning and sharing ideas for future collaboration. Send Expressions of Interest email to Ben to receive updates, and watch out for a finalised itinerary in Feb 2018.
