Training in Environmental Responsibility for Youth of Communities

The Program of Awareness and Training for Environmental Responsibility (RESAMB) initiated the process of formation of the Fourth Generation of Promoters for Environmental Responsibility. This generation is made up of 20 young people from the towns of Reforma, Palenque I and Palenque II, from the Los Gatos basin, in the Municipality of Montecristo de Guerrero, all located in the buffer zone of the El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve.

This training process allows strengthening the presence of community actors, based on the revaluation of the ecosystem services of their communities, which leads to the sustainable management of the basin. The training is carried out through six modules, with participatory and awareness-raising workshops. For the first module, called "Who am I and how is the place where we live?", Young people were integrated as a group of environmental responsibility and recognized the cultural and biological diversity of their locality, as well as the importance of their maintenance.

For the second module, called "The planet as a system and its natural cycles", the young promoters recognized what is part of a broader concept, such as the planet earth, the solar system, the milky way and other systems that interact with life and natural cycles. The workshops were carried out in the ejido Vista Alegre and in the town of Reforma, respectively.

The Awareness and Training Program for Environmental Responsibility (RESAMB) is implemented jointly by the AMBIO Cooperative, with the support of the El Triunfo Conservation Fund (FONCET), the National Commission of Protected Natural Areas (CONANP), the National Institute of Forestry, Agricultural and Livestock Research (INIFAP), Tierra Verde AC, Natural Dimension AC, and with funds from the Social Commitment Program of Citibanamex. It is implemented within the framework of the "Project for the Diversification and Restoration of Landscapes Transformed into Communities of the El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve 2017-2018".
