Instituto Ecológico y Político, IEP is an environmental organization in Chile. The organization, founded in 1987, works with campaigns and is active throughout the country. Among other things, initiatives have been taken for the project “Chile sustentable” which means sustainable Chile where IEP highlights practical and sustainable alternatives to the country’s traditional development model. The organization also works to bring a sustainability perspective into all education and to make the general public aware of ecology and sustainability issues. A good way to reach out is to collaborate with others. The IEP has therefore established successful collaborations with local civic councils, universities, smaller environmental organizations and international organizations.
