The objective was the preparation of the general guidelines on content to be dictated in the training aimed at people who exercise public functions in the three branches of the State.

The meetings dealt with various topics associated with the biodiversity axis, climate change, training in laws, among others. The space allowed each organization to give its point of view about the important issues and the modalities to be adopted.

The design of the law and its compliance by the authorities, allows and will allow the training of those who implement public policies on environmental matters, based on consensual content from the dialogue. Undoubtedly, citizen participation constitutes a fundamental pillar for any institutional architecture linked to the environmental issue, which must be reflected in a real and finished way at the moment of crystallizing state practice, in this case, mandatory training.
