They are fundamental in the preservation of the environment, being in charge of the household responsibilities, creating and generating production characteristics, sustainable and ecological consumption. There exists a lack of information and training in the population to raise awareness and to empower on the matters of clean energies.

To seek strategic alliances with state entities and civil society, for the preservation of the environment, through dialogues with local authorities; that generate internal policies with budgets for the environment gestion. Creating norms that sanction environmental harm. Developing training processes and capacitation in the matters of Evironmentalism aimed towards women and their empowerment.
