The mayors, governors and representatives of popular organizations that will participate in this meeting will resume the debate on participatory democracy and the importance of peoples as a central political subject in the design of public policies, from the State, and at the different scales of political administration.
During the meeting is expected the socialization of experiences between local governments, and the establishment of work routes and common agendas to consolidate a articulation promoting team, tools and communication platforms, as well as new methods of regional integration between local governments and peoples.
Given the development of regional political processes, emerging actors are forced to develop alternative mechanisms to consolidate the trust of their social base, betting on new alternatives, popular consultation models and public investment methods that result in the empowerment of the population.
