Chile

We are very happy to be working on a new friendship and engagement and running our first trip in September 2017.

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.

The local communities who will host and welcome us are really looking forward to us coming and have asked us specifically to engage with them in conversation about the challenges and aspirations they have for the future.

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.
