Ecology Certification Ceremony at Salesian Agricultural School, Catemu, Chile
Within the framework of Environment Month, 21 students from the Salesian Agricultural School at Catemu, Chile have been certified in ecology, demonstrating their commitment to preserving the environment and promoting sustainable development. These young women, from 1st to 4th grade, prepared during the month of May to obtain this distinction granted by Prodemu and Fundación La Semilla.
The certification in ecology aims to train leaders capable of replicating the knowledge acquired, raising awareness about the importance of the subject among their peers and in the various communities where they are inserted. This initiative seeks to expand practices in sustainable development, promoting a positive change in society.
The award ceremony took place during the Environmental Preservation and Education Seminar, held at the La Semilla Foundation Headquarters in Hijuelas. Each of the certified young women received a Chilean palm, a symbol of recognition, and a seedling kit for an organic garden.
In this important achievement, the students had the presence and support of Inspector Lissette Vergara, who also participated in the certification program. The Rector of the Agricultural School, Naraly Araya, highlighted the importance of training young people in issues related to sustainable development, since: "they will be the ones who will lead the management of compliance with the indicators proposed by the UN in terms of sustainability" , he pointed.
During the seminar, it was highlighted that Chile has reached a high level in the development of practices aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals. For this reason, the Salesian Agricultural School is proud to add its commitment to the care of our common home and contribute to the preservation of the environment.
From Fundación La Semilla, its manager, Roberto Nordetti, explained that students from the Agricultural School were chosen to receive this training due to the commitment shown by the institution with the environment and its outstanding agroecological approach.
This milestone represents one more step on the road to a better environment, reflecting the constant commitment of the Salesian Agricultural School in promoting sustainable practices and training leaders committed to preserving the environment.
