Challenge

Migration from rural to urban life has generated excessive growth and planning difficulties in Bogota as it is hard to ensure the satisfaction of the needs of both residents and displaced people. People who arrive in the city face a high degree of precariousness and segregation in shantytowns, located mainly south of the city. It also causes changes in the lives of people where distrust and fear prevail and the social fabric deteriorates with the breakdown of relationships.

Solution

Agroecology is a creative vehicle to help vulnerable populations regain confidence and stability. Sembrando Confianza aims to improve social, and environmental conditions of 20 families in South Bogota through environmental workshops and the creation of agroecological communal greenhouses and urban gardens, as strategies for food security and environmental resilience, in addition to the creation of spaces for personal and collective meeting and the restoration of social fabric.

Long-Term Impact

The long-term objective is to arouse a strong interest among 20 families and 60 children for the common good by communally improving food autonomy, health and respect for the social and physical environment. Through agroecology we stimulate children's curiosity and openness to encourage adults of tomorrow to make thoughtful decisions and become responsible citizens, socially and environmentally for their community, acting against climate change and social inequities.
