Puerto Varas Environmental Education

Changes in habits are possible and sustainable over time as long as they are triggered by education and the awareness of the reasons behind them. The ReCrea Program centers on children as a driving factor for change, seeking through environmental education to produce a multiplier effect and a new way of behaving towards waste generation and disposal.

We believe that as a result society will relate in a more responsible way towards waste management. Currently, ReCrea Lago Llanquihue’s Environmental Education Program is being implemented in three schools in Puerto Varas and focuses on students from first to fourth grade and seeks to raise awareness of environmental issues through classroom work and teachers´training practices.
