It fosters an exercise in cohabitation and solidarity whose goal is to contribute to peace processes and also to create consciousness regarding the urgent need to preserve the ecosystems of the Nation.Participating in the Program gives you an opportunity to get to know Colombia’s natural and cultural wealth and the way in which it approaches and deals with issues of conservation and the importance of its natural resources.
