The school’s collaborators participated in the Festival of Life.
As part of the activities carried out by Gimnasio Moderno in the environmental management program and the first version of the Healthy Life Festival, last September 11, an outing was organized to the Chicaque Natural Park, in which the collaborators of Gimnasio Moderno and Gimnasio Sabio Caldas (IED) participated.
The main objective of this activity was to promote self-care and environmental conservation through a space in which each person was in contact with nature. It also highlighted the importance of conserving natural resources such as forests, soil, air, and especially water, through the tour that leads to the waterfall, which crosses the Chicaque stream and then the Vélez stream in the middle of a beautiful cloud forest.
The collaborators had the opportunity to walk through basins through which hundreds, perhaps thousands of years ago, enormous streams of water flowed, of which today only their traces remain. While walking along this trail, it was possible to reflect on how reduced the water flow is, due to the high number of eucalyptus trees and the increase of the human population in nearby areas, which make constant use of this resource.
This event was an opportunity to promote good relationships and socialization among different work teams. We hope to generate a space like this again, in which we can talk about the importance of conserving our diversity and availability of resources on our planet.
