As part of the 2012 second semester, we held the first Tlalana Symposium in Mexico City from October 19th to the 21st. Several collectives attended the call from different cities such as Aguascalientes (Aguascalientes), Tehuacán (Puebla), Cuicatlán (Oaxaca), San Cristobal de las Casas (Chiapas) and different delegations from Mexico City. A total of 42 people that currently participate in “Tlalana: Self-Management & Youth” attended the event, either as facilitators, promoters, co-advisers or other individuals lending their support to the project in various ways.
The aim of the colloquium was to build, from different points of view, the identity of the Tlalana Network. The event served as a starting point to identify our coincidences as young people that build local organized groups to improve our environment.
From the feedback given by the participants and the development of the activities we consider the objectives were met and we are ready to initiate activities that reinforce the links between all actors in the network achieving greater regional impact.
In addition, the new Tlalana Network Platform, an online social network space for training, meeting and exchanging of experiences, was officially presented to the public. In the coming days you will find the report of the symposium, as well as images and videos for the event in our web site.
