Come Closer to Paradise

The Center for Renewable Energy and Environmental Quality A.C. (CERCA) has been working intensely since 2016 to make visible the importance of a healthy environment for the inhabitants of BCS and for its ecosystems. This time with your help we will do it at a national level. With the "Approach Paradise" campaign, we will initiate an important mobilization throughout the country so that our government acts in the face of the serious consequences of global warming. We are already suffering and accelerating the deployment of wind and solar energy, bringing Mexico closer to La Paz, in order to comply with its international agreements to be part of the fight against climate change and not promote this environmental phenomenon that is threatening sustainable development, health, and life itself.

Baja California Sur is the only state in the country that has two electrical systems isolated from each other and that are not connected to the National Electric System. This energy isolation, together with the amount of sun and wind that it registers, makes it the most viable entity for generating and consuming 100 percent of its energy from clean sources. Have a positive impact to comply with the international climate agreements agreed by the Mexican government for 2024 and 2030, and thus stop being one of the most polluting nations in the world.

Participate in "Events with a Cause"

CERCA is a non-profit civil association, this means that we do not profit from the activities we carry out, but financial support is required through donations, which finance the different projects that the association is working on. Due to the above, CERCA occasionally develops fundraising events with the purpose of supporting the cause that encompasses the projects we are currently working on.

Events held in 2023

Auction "Art with a Cause": The Life That Weaves the Sea

CERCA in 2022 held a wine auction at Puerta Cortés, this being the first edition of a CERCA event held at Puerta Cortés. In 2023 an art auction with a cause: "The Life That Weaves the Sea" was held at Puerta Cortés considering this the second edition of a CERCA event held at Puerta Cortés itself. The auction was held last Thursday, February 23, 2023, at the Beach Club of Puerta Cortes Resort. The objective of the event was to raise funds for the Sustainable Rural Communities project. This project seeks to support fishing and agricultural communities and ranches that are off-grid, with an autonomous renewable energy kiosk operated by the same population through capacity building. CERCA seeks to develop this kind of events in collaboration with Puerta Cortés and sponsors at least once a year, becoming an annual event of the association.

Runway for Sustainability

On Thursday, April 13, 2023, the Runway for Sustainability fundraising event was held at the facilities of Luxury Avenue Mall Los Cabos, B.C.S., Mexico. The objective of this fundraising event was to support CERCA's "Sustainable Rural Communities" program, which consists of the development and implementation of clean and renewable energy photovoltaic centers in communities that are disconnected from the electricity grid.

The event was co-created with the Luxury Avenue Mall team, which is committed to creating community, supporting culture and art, caring for the environment, and highlighting the roots of Mexico. Likewise, we have the support of Ragne Sinikas, founder of the World Women Conference & Awards, and three great local designers: Angie Carranza, Rocio Coronel and Sonia Falcone.

Alfredo Álvarez Photography Event

On the afternoon of Thursday, July 20, the Center for Renewable Energy and Environmental Quality (CERCA) held at Publieto Marinero in Puerta Cortés, great allies and collaborators, the photography exhibition of Alfredo Álvarez as part of the "Come Closer to Paradise" campaign.

Alfredo Álvarez, native of Mexico City and naturalized as a sudcaliforniano (South Californian) has been selected to exhibit his work at the Mexican consulate in Calgary, Canada from August 3 to September 13 of this year. Being an artist who portrays the state of conservation and landscape richness of Baja California Sur, it is an honor for CERCA to accompany this exhibition as part of the “Come Closer to Paradise” campaign so that more people in the world know and join to the actions of care and responsibility that paradise implies, ensuring that we can have environmental health conditions for present and future generations.

The photography exhibition served as a fundraising event to cover the logistics of the trip and the artist's exhibition, which was strengthened by the presence and participation of great artists such as Mariana Varela, Roberto Ojeda and Taiki Castro Sui Qui who accompanied them with live music and contemporary dance.

Likewise, there was the presence of the Xoloescuincle restaurant who offered delicious appetizers to the attendees; the Dos Mares craft brewery that, in addition to a fresh beer, shared a refreshing kombucha with hibiscus and rosemary; and also the Cocktails Club mixology bar with spectacular prepared drinks.

This event was possible thanks to the support and commitment of the La Paz community. That is why we wholeheartedly thank those who provided the necessary elements to achieve this event, such as Puerta Cortés, Baja Digital, Xoloescuincle Restaurant, Dos Mares brewery, Armonía en Verde vegan cosmetics, Sol Azul oyster farming, BCS marine meadows, ENI Diving and Exploration and Ruta Film.
