Chile

“Those who hurry waste their time.” Patagonian saying.

We are very happy to be working on a new friendship and engagement running our first ever trip to Chile!  A place renowned for its majestic beauty, home to some of the precious few untouched wild places we have left on our planet and where serendipity takes over. But it is also a country not without its struggles and local communities are feeling the pressure of globalisation and threats to local livelihoods  from multinationals who all want a piece in their countries resources.

The local communities who will host and welcome us are feeling the impacts of the shifting world they are situated in and are really looking forward to us coming. They have asked us specifically to engage with them in conversation about the challenges and aspirations they have for the future particularly in areas of environment, sustainability, cultural preservation and local livelihoods.

Commencing in the capital Santiago we will be engaging with some of the poorer communities looking at prevalent social issues of the day. From there we will head to Southern Chile where we will learn about the rich cultural traditions and history of the Mapuche and take part in a local agricultural group meeting in the town of Gorbea, a youth & social enterprise discussion in Pitrufquen, and a renewables and climate change discussion on local farms (or campo). We’ll be accommodated in farm stays, cabins in local forests, and the traditional Ruka of the Mapuches.

This will be an exciting new journey for CERES Global in beautiful and exotic Chile. Join us in learning and sharing ideas for future collaboration.
