The workshop will be attended by representatives of the Ministries of Education and teachers of the region who will share methodologies and experiences in their respective countries in terms of responsible energy use.

Representatives from Mexico, the Dominican Republic, and the countries of the Trifinio Project – Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador – will also share their experiences in environmental education directed to younger segments of society.
