Youth ACT Chile - Cunco Group


We are a group of young professionals who live in the commune of Cunco, in the Araucanía region, in southern Chile.

They are part of the group: Andrea Sanhueza, Consuelo Martínez, Nicole León, María José Matus, Moisés Ñancucheo, Erik Lombaert, Queti Zúñiga and Rosi Catalán. Our goal is to promote the participation and active construction of young people in the community in Cunco. We support the self-managed organization.

The Youth-ACT Youth for Participation and Action Project called us to participate, then the pandemic came and in this situation of limited mobility and displacement we find ourselves discovering a wide world of people, issues and organizations. The virtual world allowed us to build our group.

During these three semesters we have organized different conversations with organizations and people who work in Cunco in relation to the topics of:

  • Citizen Participation: Plebiscite, a new constitution for Chile.
  • Mapuche worldview
  • Gender Parity
  • Childhood and Adolescence
  • Ecology and Environment

In each of these conversations transmitted online, we have shared with people who are working on the issues, inside and outside Cunco. Our goal is to address the issues from the local actors who are working, reflecting on those realities.

We wanted to open up to know the different organizations that work in our commune, their impact and scope of their action.
