Find your own solutions to the environmental problems
Ecobarrial is an organization that works with environmental education and promotes local and ecological alternatives from a social-ecological perspective. The organization was founded in 1987 in Valparaiso in Chile under the name Cetal, but since 2001 it is called Corporación Ecobarrial. Ecobarrial promotes independence and local organization. This means encouraging groups that are directly affected by an environmental problem to find and come up with solutions to their problems themselves. This approach aims to stimulate the development of technological and socially adapted alternatives and to ensure that ecological communities are built. The organization, which is active in and around Santiago as well as in the Valparaíso region, also collaborates with several other local organizations. Together, it is so much easier to come up with ideas and solutions that promote an ecological lifestyle.
