Description of the project

The Fundación Biosfera was founded in 1991 by the geologist Oscar Haluska, the lawyer Jorge Bertone and the ecologists Jorge Ibarro and Horacio de Belaustegui. The current environmental deterioration, along with the conviction that each of us can be the key to reverse the situation and strive for a better life quality and common good, led to the creation of the Fundación. The problem of climate change is the central axis of the work done in the Fundación Biosfera; its members are involved in different projects and organizations, both locally and globally. Since 1998, the Fundación Biosfera has been an observer NGO in the United Nations Climate Change Conference. The Fundación actively contributes to raise awareness in society about climate change permanent risks, and it assists and guides governments in various negotiations to promote informed decision making.
