Matías Asun works with Chilean activists and politicians to draft meaningful legislation to protect fresh water and glaciers from mining interests.

Matías helped launch a campaign to pressure the Chilean Government to create legislation to preserve Chile’s glaciers (which make up 82% of all glaciers in South America). “If the Chilean government won’t protect the country’s glaciers from mining interests, then we’ll do it by creating our own country with our own protective legislation, The Glacier Republic.”
