We support comprehensive education that fosters creativity, art and a preoccupation for the environment. We seek to enrich the academic formation of children and young adults, because we rely on them to positively contribute to our society in the present and future. Art is a form of expression, of knowledge, that can build bridges and bring together different disciplines and people.
Our goal is to work together and create alliances with educational institutions and foundations in initiatives that enhance talent, creativity and human development. We consider education as a fundamental pillar of human and societal development, and prioritize offering young adults opportunities to access an education that encourages reflection and critical thinking.
Art and science come together in this program that invites artists, scientists and communities to work together in the southern regions of Chile as well as abroad.

Each year the seeds of some of the 170 trees that survived the nuclear bomb of 1945 are collected in Hiroshima. These seeds have been sent to almost thirty countries, and since 2012 they have germinated and grown in the Botanical Garden of the Universidad Austral de Chile, in Valdivia. From this initiative, we generated a digital platform with educational activities, www.legadoverde.cl.See Project
