This allows boys, girls, young people and adults, to have first-hand and direct access in the territory to the novelties of the scientific world that the congress brings us, ”she said.

In the meeting with local media, the rector of the Universidad Católica del Maule, Dr. Claudio Rojas Miño, pointed out that “The central issue here is climate change, which I deepen as a climate crisis. Probably one of the areas in which we can contribute from the Maule is how to generate sustainable agriculture. At least from the Catholic University of Maule, one of our most important centers has to do with the coastal dry land to support that sector that is very depressed. The important thing is to raise awareness that we will all have to see a crisis dynamic that we may refuse to see, but that is affecting us and will affect us more in five more years if we are not capable of advancing in actions to resolve these issues that we are experiencing,” he said.

In this same sense, the rector of the University of Talca, Dr. Carlos Torres Fuschlocher, highlighted that “the fundamental issue of interest to society is, of course, climate change and the resilience of our planet to resist the demand that we as humanity impose on it. In this sense, as a University we have declared in our vision and strategic plan our emphasis in the field of research, innovation and linkage in what is climate change and mitigation measures that help to adapt, for example, forests and crops ”, he said he.

Words that were reinforced by the Vice Chancellor for Research and Doctorates of the Autonomous University of Chile, Dr. Iván Suazo Galdames, who stated that “We are going to have more and more climatic events and agricultural production crises associated with water stress and people displaced for reasons environmental, that is, it is a problem that is affecting the entire society and Chile will be one of the countries most affected by the difficulties associated with the water crisis, in such a way that the only way to deal with this is with knowledge and with people that they understand what science has to say about that and with researchers that generate knowledge that allows us to face this panorama and then transform our development model that we have as a society and that has often done a lot of damage to the environment”, he stated.
