development means meets the needs of the present
without compromising the ability of future
generations to meet their own; is durable over
time, efficient and rational use of resources,
and equitable benefits.
Normally it is not understood how close are the
links between human activities and the
environment. To enhance the awareness of
society, it must not only understand the
physical and biological environment, but also
the socioeconomic reality of human development.
Among the difficulties to consider towards this
development model is the complexity of problems
and situations that are sometimes characteristic
of large cities, but also are present or linked
to small towns and even in large uninhabited.
The cities have their own complications related
to their size: overconsumption, the great
generation of waste, overcrowding, lack of green
spaces, the various types of pollution: noise,
Local economies are severely affected by the
lack of sustainability of their activities. This
gives rise to marginal spaces that are highly
affected: slums on the outskirts of cities
(forced to leave their hometowns by the lack of
work or services), impoverishment of rural
populations, loss of cultural identity of
indigenous and Creole communities. The latter
precursor for its traditions of sustainable
development, and particularly sensitive to
mishandling development policies.
FUNDACIÓN AGRESTE seeks to sensitize the
general public and take action to address the
challenge of creating a balance between
ecological and technological developments to
improve the quality of life of all inhabitants
