The mission of Somos Energía is to empower children and adolescents from rural areas of Chuquisaca, Bolivia to take action on climate change and environmental degradation through educational workshops on climate change and energy, with separate programs for young people aged 6-12, and those aged 13-17. Through a combination of audiovisual learning, mentorship, hands-on experiments, Somos Energía aims to create a culture of care and value for the local environment while building capacity for active citizenship and local climate action. Paola and Areli are also co-founders of the Student Energy Chapter at the University of San Francisco Xavier de Chuquisaca, in Bolivia.
