The sixty-six panels, on display until the end of September, provide basic knowledge on the Dominican Republic’s unique landscape as well as tips on how to protect and conserve our country’s natural beauty. All will learn from this exhibition although it seeks to inspire and motivate young people.

It also provides an invaluable opportunity for students and visitors to take advantage of this educational experience in the hope of broadening all of our horizons and fostering a sense of national pride in the conservation of our nation’s natural wealth.

The exhibition of Dominican conservationist photographers, José Alejandro Álvarez and Eladio Fernández will transport viewers from the highest mountaintops to the depths of the ocean. These two outstanding photographers have traveled far and wide to explore not just the Caribbean islands, but the world’s seas and oceans in search of the perfect image from behind their camera lens. This photographic journey showcases only a fraction of the immense wealth that surrounds us but it stresses an important point: we must conserve it.
Recycled Art Exhibit - ReCrearte Program
September 8, 2013
DREFF Year Round Programs
The Eco-Huertos Program seeks to support the creation of organic and sustainable vegetable gardens in schools and communities throughout the Dominican Republic. Through ongoing field activities, the program bolsters the natural sciences curriculum in the schools.
The contest is divided into two categories: short films and public service announcements. With this contest, GFDD and FUNGLODE seek to promote environmental filmmaking as a platform to educate and raise awareness.
The ReCrearte Program aims to raise awareness of the 3Rs of solid waste management: reduce, reuse, recycle. The workshops also emphasize and demonstrate how recycling waste into art can empower individuals and communities alike.
As part of its mission to reach more communities, institutions and individuals around the country, the DR Environmental Film Festival organizes film screenings year-round, providing the opportunity to bring successful film programs to new and remote communities.
