IFOP Arica Stands Out in Plaza Colon’s International Day against Climatic Change Commemoration

November 2nd, 2023 Periodista Gabriela.Gutiérrez

In a collaboration to face environmental challenges, Plaza Colón emerged as activities committed to climate awareness epicenter. Last October 24rth. Seremi de Medio Ambiente (Enviroment Ministerial Secretariat) organized an event that brought together various government and private entities with the purpose of raising community awareness about climatic change and proper waste management.

From 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., this city square came to life with the active participation of Water General Directorate (DGA), Energy Regional Ministerial Secretariat (SEREMI Energía), Environment Regional Ministerial Secretariat (SEREMI MMA), and with Fisheries Development Institute (IFOP) notable presence.

The different institutional stands eloquently presented climatic change effects and inadequate waste management on local biodiversity repercussions. Students from State CFT, Rancagua Regiment School, Escuela Francia and Escuela Chile Norte actively participated, as did general public, in this enriching educational experience.

Among exhibitors, Fisheries Development Institute scientific observers Patricio Muñoz, Daniel Fuenzalida and José Videla, stood out by presenting an interesting stand with a sample of hydrobiological resources, which made it possible to graphically reveal climatic change effects on some marine species life history and distribution present in the region. The above was very well received by the attendees.

This event highlights collective commitment towards building a more sustainable future. Both the organization and attendees expressed their gratitude for commitment shown during the activity, underlining the importance of continuing to work hand in hand to address environmental challenges that affect our community and regional biodiversity.
