Closed project

Just over 200 km north of Santiago, in the Region of Valparaíso, Chile, is the Petorca Valley. The valley is surrounded by mountain ranges and landscapes that have been transformed by the industrial development of the last 200 years.

The current model of intensive agriculture threatens the water reserves and the free access to these; natural assets are running out fast, compromising the well-being of the population and taking with it the culture, the mythology and the wealth of the area. All of this, combined with a decrease in jobs, and migration from rural to urban areas, project a discouraging future for the commune, leaving Petorca today as a symbol for the fight for water and territory.

Petorca Valley Geopark aims to revert this, promoting new economic and social mechanisms for the area.

The principal action areas to achieve this vision are archaeological and geological interest sites with renowned scientific importance. These are embedded in an ongoing research process, in which socio-environmental education, conservation of heritage elements, and special interest tourism are the primary action areas, and are approached together with the community, the academy and the local representatives and organizations.

Research residencies started in the summer of 2017 and with the desire of growth, investigation and territorial recognition, we decided to form a multidisciplinary team. The objective of this is to create an associative model that promotes the exchange or knowledge between the community, the academy and the civil, public and private sector, supporting, at the same time, a sustainable tourism in order to diversify and expand the job opportunities for the inhabitants of the valley.

Even though the work of these professionals and students is not paid, funding is necessary to support the needs of the team when they are doing fieldwork. As well, funding is needed for hosting workshops, excursions and activities in collaboration with community associations and local producers, thus they are the principal engine of the Geopark.

Thanks to the collaboration of different actors, the Petorca Valley Geopark Project is being built slowly but surely. Nevertheless, resources are still limited, which slows down the development of the Geopark but does not compromise its continuity, thus there is a need for a radical change. The Geopark is a milestone towards a more sustainable future. It is moved by the desire of a social well-being that reinstates the ancestral cosmo-vision of past cultures with the today’s community. At the same time, it reflects the impact of over-exploitation in all Latin-American territory.

The Valley calls people to reconnect with their territory and roots. Open your eyes, living consciously of the environment is a decision, be part of the project and let’s achieve the milestone together.

    Besides supporting the Fair of local producers, we can realize the Residence of a group of 7 to 10 students and professionals to continue the territorial linkage and articulation.

  • With the 50%

    Besides the work with the Fair and residences of articulation and linking, we can realize the Residence of a group of 7 to 10 students and professionals from the geology area to do fieldwork and a territorial characterization study.

  • With the 75%

    Besides the territorial work, including the Fair and the Residences of articulation, linking and investigation, we will make the Presentation of the Project in Santiago, Chile, with the associations involved with the project and the local producers, who's travel expenses will be covered . Everyone who has collaborated through this platform will be invited to this event!
