Lines of Work
Our lines of work are divided into 3 main thematic areas: (1) Legal defense of ecosystems with high conservation value; (2) Conservation and ecological restoration, and; (3) Cultural transformation from a transdisciplinary perspective:
Vision y Mission
Vision: Contribute to the creation of environmentally friendly socio-economic systems, limiting the scale and quality of the use of resources to prevent their overexploitation and the overloading of their ecosystems, also contributing to the well-being and health of people.
Mission: Defend and protect high conservation value ecosystems, and contribute to the preservation and ecological restoration of biodiversity.
Fundación Geute Conservación Sur, as a local Puerto Varas organization, makes its experience and knowledge available to contribute to decisions that will lead to the city we dream of, a city that is respectful of its identity and culture, has public spaces, lives in harmony with the landscape and cares for the privileged environment in which it is located. A city with a wonderful quality of life for its inhabitants and for all those who visit it. We invite you to participate in Proyecto Puerto Varas sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or reviewing our publications here.
Looking for a New WorldThe planet is in danger. Many are the reasons, but what is worrisome, yet simultaneously brings hope, is that the root of all those reasons is first and foremost human behavior.

We are involved in a paradigm of development absorbed by neoliberalism in which economic growth has become an end in itself with priority over the wellbeing of humans and nature. That paradigm has profoundly changed social, political and economic systems. Values became entrenched that are based on the importance of personal success over the common good, and a market that creates needs has been fostered to increase consumption and therefore the production of goods and services in a planet that is ecologically “in the red.” (more…)
