National Celebrations


Our principal objective is to help assess the biodiversity of Mediterranean Chile.
Our organization is comprised of people committed to finding a balance between the human communities and the natural environment of Central Chile as well as the entire nation.
“We are aware of the environmental challenges involved in building a society that understands the interdependence of human beings and their environment.”
Our mission is to contribute to the development of a new society that will work together to create networks among actors concerned about environmental protection.

In Francisco Olea School our main goals are to contribute to the world wide work improving the academic family’s day-by-day habits. In addition, we would like to expand the work already done to invite more people to protect the environment and to be part of this project.
