Impact Narrative

Pablo’s plan for sharing OVER:

“My name is Pablo, I’m from Chile, a country who doesn’t care that much about the consequences of the industrial-centered development. Of course, we are trying to put the efforts on making the difference. I work in three different areas and I could share this book in all of them.

– The first one is my main job, where I work as a project engineer of the Sustainability Office in the Engineering School of the University of Chile (public University). My goal there is educating the community toward the sustainable development through projects, teaching, etc. I could use this book with my students showing the anthropic effects of development today, since they’ll become engineers and usually most of their decisions in their work fields will have huge impact in the environment.
– I’m also the vice president of a NGO called CoValente (Covalent) where we work with students and local communities developing projects related to environment care. I believe this book can sensitize people and with that, we can change our daily consumption patterns or at least conceive them.
– Finally, I’m a nature photographer, and this field involves a lot of sharing. Getting your inspiration straight is the best source of great photographic material, so this book could be a great motivation not only for me, but also for colleagues and visitors of exhibitions. I’d love to share this.

So, my circle is very big and diverse. My promise is sharing this material with my students, colleagues, photographers, local neighbors and friends. I think this material could make a change among us.”
