The National University of Colombia´s Environmental Forum "Environmental challenges in the construction of peace"
At of the Universidad Nacional´s Auditorium Alfonso Pumarejo a discussion group was held with the participation of Los Andes and Javeriana universities, together with guests as the Indigenous Regional Council of Cauca’s Representative (CRIC), the Vice Minister of Environment and Sustainable Development, The Regional Facilitator, Friends of the Earth Latin America and the Caribbean, the Natural Land Agency’s General Director and a Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia’s (FARC) delegate. It all started with the peace process that has been working in Colombia for about four years and which showed results in 2016: a new beginning for the country after 50 years of war, and the most important concern of the forum: How will this new change generate reforms in the environmental part? This questioning left many topics for reflection such as global warming, socio-environmental, social and economic crisis, etc.
