Eco-Philosophical hike in Belo Horizonte (Brazil)

Ecological Volunteering

New Acropolis in Belo Horizonte carried out an Eco-Philosophical hike in Catas Altas and Caraça Park, as part of the activities organized to commemorate World Environment Day.

On the promenade, apart from hiking and visiting the waterfalls, various ecologically relevant lectures were given by professors of the Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG), including on Astronomy by Renato Las Casas, on Geomorphology by Allaoua Saadi,  and a workshop on native bees by Estefane Siqueira. The activity also featured moments of artistic expression through poetry, story-telling and music, without missing of course the traditional bonfire which accompanied the evening.

As closing to the event, a visit was carried out to the Sanctuary of Caraça, whereby participants got to know the history and culture of the place that served as school and formed several personalities and politicians of the State of Minas Gerais and of Brazil.
