Among the topics developed: The recognition of Mother Earth as a living being and its inalienable rights, and the teaching of the 5R’s (Reduce, Recycle, Reuse, Reeducate and Reject).
Through the International Program Children of Mother Earth, the GEAP emphasizes environmental education as a power that can generate positive changes in society to reverse the damage caused to the environment.
During the celebration of June 5, the GEAP received an invitation from the Department of the Environment of the municipalities of Puente Alto (Metropolitan Region) and Calama (Antofagasta Region) to participate at the Environment Fair.
