¡Muchas gracias por apoyar la promoción de una nueva generación de Amigos de los Parques nacionales, verdaderos guardianes del futuro!

Finalizamos 2020 mientras el planeta atraviesa una crisis sanitaria y ambiental que nos invita a escuchar lo que nos dice la naturaleza sobre interconexión e interdependencia. Las áreas silvestres protegidas como parques nacionales y las áreas marinas protegidas invitan a la humanidad a reinventar la naturaleza, no como algo que está afuera, sino como algo que está en cada respiro de los seres vivos, incluyendo a la humanidad. Desde estos lugares se puede estimular una comprensión de la historia en un contexto amplio, no sólo de los seres humanos, sino de toda la comunidad de vida producto de la interconexión e interdependencia de los seres vivos en el planeta. Y es por ello que el proyecto Niños por los Parques de la Patagonia, que busca reconectar a las nuevas generaciones con la comunidad de vida de la que somos parte, apunta especialmente a los más jóvenes, aquellos propulsores de los cambios, quienes nos cuestionan y empujan hacia la innovación.  

Como las regiones de la Patagonia Chilena se han visto afectadas por prolongados periodos de cuarentena y restricciones sanitarias y muchos parques nacionales estuvieron gran parte del año cerrados, decidimos trabajar en el material que acompañe y motive a estas nuevas generaciones e invite a despertar la conciencia de las personas en torno al patrimonio natural protegido como parques nacionales y parques marinos. En este contexto, Amigos de los Parques publicará de manera periódica ¿Por qué Parques Nacionales? Una invitación a ser guardianes del futuro, material educativo que estará disponible para las salidas a terreno con niños, niñas y jóvenes en parques de la Patagonia, que estamos desarrollando en conjunto con nuestros amigos de Ladera Sur y que busca recorrer el valor de la conservación desde distintas perspectivas a través de voces inspiradoras que movilicen a impulsar guardianes de los parques.

Cada texto está escrito e ilustrado por amigos y amigas de los parques, desde el amor por la naturaleza y será publicado por capítulos, para luego reunir todos los textos en una sola publicación que estimule a descubrir, querer y cuidar el patrimonio natural. Luego, cuando las restricciones sanitarias nos lo permitan, programaremos nuevas salidas para descubrir en terreno y abrir las puertas y las miradas al mundo de la naturaleza y la conservación.

Este año dos instituciones sumaron su apoyo concreto a este programa. Agradecemos a Mountain Film Festival, que en sus versiones virtuales apoyó este proyecto, y a Patagonia, con quienes hicimos una botella MIIR de 680ml aislada al vacío cuya venta también apoya las experiencias de aprendizaje para niños y jóvenes sobre Parques Nacionales.

Son nuestros primeros pasos en este largo camino de promover una cultura de parques. Una invitación a ser guardianes de nuestros parques nacionales, guardianes del futuro. ¡Gracias por ser parte!

Thank you for supporting the promotion of a new generation of Amigos de los Parques (Friends of National Parks), true guardians of the future!

We are ending 2020 while the planet is going through a health and environmental crisis that invites us to listen to what nature tells us about interconnectedness and interdependence. Protected wild areas such as national parks and marine protected areas invite humanity to reinvent nature, not as something that is outside, but as something that is in every breath of living beings, including humanity. From these places an understanding of history in a broad context can be stimulated, not only of human beings, but of the entire community of life, product of the interconnection and interdependence of living beings on the planet. And that is why the project Children for the Parks of Patagonia, which seeks to reconnect the new generations with the community of life of which we are part, especially targets the youngest, those promoters of change, who question us and push towards innovation.

As the regions of Chilean Patagonia have been affected by long periods of quarantine and sanitary restrictions and many national parks were closed for a large part of the year, we decided to work on the material that accompanies and motivates these new generations and invites them to raise awareness of people around protected natural heritage such as national parks and marine parks. In this context, Amigos de los Parques will periodically publish Why National Parks? An invitation to be guardians of the future, educational material that will be available for field trips with children and young people in national parks, which we are developing together with our friends from Ladera Sur and which seeks to explore the value of conservation from different perspectives through inspiring voices that mobilize to promote park guards.

Each text is written and illustrated by friends of the parks, from the love for nature and will be published by chapters, and then collect all the texts in a single publication that encourages discovering, loving and caring for the natural heritage. Then, when sanitary restrictions will allow us, we will program new outings to discover on the ground nature and conservation.

This year two institutions added their concrete support to this program. We thank Mountain Film Festival, which supported this project in its virtual versions, and Patagonia, with whom we made a 680ml vacuum-insulated MIIR bottle whose sale also supports learning experiences for children and young people about National Parks.

These are our first steps on this long road to promoting a park culture. An invitation to be guardians of our national parks, guardians of the future. Thanks for being part!

Thank you
