Maipú Student Forest

An urban forest for students in Maipú

Planting an indigenous forest at the Liceo Bicentenario de Maipú would see greenery restored and provide a site for biodiversity to flourish in the busy city of Santiago. The site is next to a main road and consequently, Maipú School Forest will tackle air pollution, enabling the entire school community to breathe more easily.

Thanks to its visibility from the roadside,  the forest will become a recognisable landmark in the local community showing how green interventions can bring physical, mental and emotional benefits to all.

"The Miyawaki forests are not only an ecological experience, but also an ethical one, as they bring us nature closer even in the city, awakening curiosity, recognition, attachment and, finally, an ethic of care. We hope that more and more people, especially children and young people, will be able to live this experience, developing a sense of belonging and care for our natural heritage."

"Schools are meant to be spaces full of life, that stimulate the senses and enable learning. With great joy and gratitude, we start to turn around a lost area of our school into a thriving forest, that will give our students more opportunities for learning, playing and enjoying nature."

Ingrid Olea, Head of Control of the Educational Corporation of Maipú
