Grupo Ecológico Sierra Gorda I.A.P. (GESG) leads a movement of civil society organizations that form the Alliance for the Conservation of the Sierra Gorda. This Alliance is made up of: Bosque Sustentable A.C. (Sustainable Forest), Tourism Products and Services of the Sierra Gorda S.A. de C.V., Joya del Hielo A.C. and Viva Sierra Gorda. Together we promote this living laboratory of best cultural practices for our planet with interdisciplinary teams. Our robust analysis of social and environmental return on investment demonstrates the impact for donors.
We are a model of entrepreneurship and social participation in the Sierra Gorda, Mexico, where we correlate economic development with biodiversity conservation. We develop the skill set and the economic value for the landowners whose forests provide environmental services- – scenic beauty as well as carbon and water capture.
