The Ludoteca Minga is a place located in Concon, a city in the Valparaiso region, Chile. Here the community can participate in free environmental workshops such as agriculture, community edible gardens, and more. Our program creates spaces that promote joint and collaborative learning, where children, youth an even older adults participate. We seek to promote community learning, providing them with the tools, skills and values they need to develop a society concerned about the environment.
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.
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.
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.
