From October 24th to 28th, the 2nd National Meeting of the Regional Units of the Pact for the Restoration of the Atlantic Forest took place. The event was divided into two moments, starting at the headquarters of the Association for the Preservation of the Environment and Life – Apremavi and ending at the headquarters of the Çarakura Institute, both in the state of Santa Catarina.

Representatives from 12 of the 16 Regional Units were present, in addition to the Executive Secretariat and the Coordination Council of the Pact. Today the Regional Units are made up of: Apremavi, Apoena, Associação Mico Leão Dourado, Cepan, Copaíba, Dap, Eco Ocelot, Gambá, Ibam, Instituto Çarakura, Iracambi, Mater Natura, MV, Natureza Bela, Regua and Save Brasil. They all work in the restaurant sector, sharing information and creating links in this important role.

The five days were full of activities, learning and important debates. The representatives were able to exchange information about the work they have been developing, share experiences, visit areas undergoing ecological restoration processes, plant native seedlings in the Mata Atlântica Municipal Park, in Atalanta (SC), and get to know up close the work developed by Apremavi and Instituto Çarakura.

Flávia Balderi, Executive Secretary and representative of Copaíba at the meeting of the Pact Units, said it was difficult to describe the relevance and satisfaction of having lived through those days. “There were many moments of learning, experiences, exchanges, contacts, welcoming, connection and sharing”, comments Flávia.
