The project stands out mainly for the reforestation activity of the mangrove forest through the social mobilization of students and teachers from Universidad del Norte. The university campus becomes a space where society can be empowered about the importance of ecosystem goods and services. During the last 6 years, Ecocampus has promoted a space in which students, teachers and citizens in general can get involved on harvesting mangrove seeds (propagulos) in the Mallorquín swamp, planting and care of the mangrove plants during the growth period in the Living Classroom of the Universidad del Norte and the subsequent phase of reforestation in the natural park: Isla Salamanca. More than 2000 people have participated in all the processes, including students, teachers and citizens in general. The students who participate are from different careers and each year they organize and look forward to the beginning of the project.
