We are a non-profit organization dedicated to research, consultancy, development and dissemination in ecological restoration, land planning, urban ecology and eco-urbanism. Our main issues include urban protected areas, cities and mountains, forests and wetlands restoration, and environmental management for mining projects and urban settlements. We work in a wide variety of ecosystems in Colombia. Our approach is based on the empowerment of local communities, the strategic use of biodiversity, and the ecological understanding of anthropogenic transformations. Our slogan: "Going back to nature, bringing back the nature, is not going backwards. Is to create a new harmony when everything has changed".
Guayacanal Foundation is an organization that emerges from a long process of social and environmental management with local communities and rural women between the regions of lower Chicamocha river and upper Sogamoso river basins. This process begins in 1993 and takes the form of Foundation in 2005, keeping its ongoing endeavor in this area until today, and opening new fronts in socio-environmental management and consulting services in several regions of the country.
