What did Voices for Climate left for us?

Introducción

With approximately 100 thousand visitors, “Voices for Climate” was a parallel and complementary space to the official venue for negotiations, which was destined to the public in general and located in the Jockey Club del Perú.

The fair aimed at raising awareness in the student and educational community for them to value and respect the environment. Furthermore, information was provided for the citizenship in general in order to explain, scientifically but in an understandable way, how protecting the planet’s natural resources improves life quality and assures the wellbeing of future generations.

Considered a milestone in environmental public events, the activities developed in the climate space were framed within the National Environmental Education Policy.
