FIESTAS DE LA TIERRA
The Sierra Gorda Earth Festivals are a celebration of the region’s rich cultural and environmental legacy in which love for nature and respect for local traditions are celebrated.
During the last 29 years, students and their parents from various communities have got together at a host school to share regional dishes (mule driver’s bread, prickly pear water, duraznillo, izote and pemoche flowers…) sing ecological songs, listen to poems, indigenous dances or the traditional huapango.
Grupo Ecologico Sierra Gorda has an environmental education team that presents a play to raise awareness about nature, identifying some of the challenges facing the region and encouraging families to participate in solving them.
ALMOST 30 YEARS ON AIR
From the start, the GESG produces the Nuestra Tierra weekly program through Radio y Television Queretaro.
In this way we can transmit our environmental and educational message to the farthest reaches of the Sierra Gorda.
If you have heard our program and have questions or comments, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be happy to hear from you.
The eco-leaders are groups organized by young people of high school age, who carry out multiple actions in favor of the improvement of the environment and our health. These groups make up a network of young activists who are concerned about the issues which are affecting Mother Earth.
They are all trained by Grupo Ecologico Sierra Gorda.

FUNDRAISING AND PUBLIC RELATIONS
GESGIAP carries out this strategic activity through its capacity to link local actors with the funds needed to support the activities of the Alliance.
We fundraise for the projects, drive public policies and develop financial mechanisms that will act in favor of biodiversity conservation.
