Challenge

Contact with nature and collective learning are fundamental elements to improve people's well-being. Through work with plants and nature, both children and young people can learn to develop new ways of living with their environment. In this way, we seek that communities focus on sustainable development, generating greater environmental awareness through active participation, positioning children as agents of change.

Solution

Ludoteca Minga seeks to offer free practical workshops focused on developing learning about caring for the environment and agriculture. The workshops will be held in a greenhouse built especially to house educational instances. Children, youth and even older adults will have the guidance of environmental education professionals and will have all the necessary tools to learn under the Learning by doing methodology.

Long-Term Impact

The main beneficiaries of this project are children and young people from the Concon commune. By contributing to this initiative you are helping to: (1) Maintain a safe space for play and learning for the community. (2) Develop workshops in which 27% of the city's inhabitants (between 0 and 19 years old) can participate. (3) Support the development of children in the region. (4) Help generate greater awareness of nature and the environment.
