Movimiento ambiental guardianes por la vida Colombia

The 'environmental movement keepers for life' is a group of boys and girls that are looking to encourage environmental care, promote awareness about the care for the planet, which is the only one that holds life.

This group of children advocating for the environment was created in Villeta, a town located 2 hours away from bogota, the capital city of colombia.

The group campaigns about fracking practices, animal testing, single-use plastics, they do parks cleanup, and they´ve done climate strikes in the main plaza of villeta to inspire environmental awareness.

They hope their movement grows bigger ans bigger so there are each time more people taking care of nature and defending the environment.
