COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT: Civil society is very active in providing public support for CHL Chile. It has been instrumental in making progress in various ways, including support for the conversion of historic building to affordable housing, and the maintenance of historic shop spaces for small local businesses. These efforts have had to battle against big retail chains and have also received some government subsidies.
PARTNERS: CHL Chile works with many civic society partners, and also seeks support from Government . Partners include a small team working out of the “Duc”, a center for contemporary urban development. This group provides meeting space, but also helps host exhibitions and conferences. Heritage projects are supported by ‘Ciudadanos por Valparaiso’.
