Jóvenes Innovando para los Océanos

Venue

A través de un panel virtual, un grupo de jóvenes entre los 17 y 25 años expondrán sus puntos de vista sobre la situación actual de los mares locales y su visión de solución a corto, mediano y largo plazo. Una charla necesaria pues poco se discute sobre el tema sabiendo que hay mucho que decir. Lo mejor es que es una charla entre jóvenes, los futuros manejadores del recurso. Algunos temas a tratar son: Innovación en la pesca, innovación en turismo local, innovación en manejo de residuos sólidos entre otros.
