Its main audience consisted of professionals, employees of financial entities, professors, students of related careers and interested public in general.

"This is an honour for UCEL to share this event that unites all those people that were interested in climate change for many years. We hope to acquire tools that would help us advance towards the real solution to problems, beyond the known diagnoses", Coria stated.

At local governments, we have been working with public policies to consume less energy, learn to save resources and give importance to the financing necessary to achieve these goals."
