On Oct. 5 and 6, the Cancún campus of Anáhuac University will host the 2nd Companies and Solidarity Summit, an initiative of the Luxembourg-based IMNERGY.
This event arrives to Cancun for the first time with the support of the Convention and Visitors Bureau of Cancun (OVC); Mexican digital media outlet Sustentur; and the Anahuac University in Cancun. Its aim is to share experiences of international, national and local success and establish agreements to help generate better partnerships in the future.
Jesus Almaguer Salazar, Managing Director of the Tourism Promotion Trust of Cancun, said in a press release posted on the website of Sustentur that “this meeting is part of the activities carried out this year by OVC regarding sustainability, in order to strengthen the private sector productive projects generated by communities, through actions like buying locally produced raw materials and the promotion of community-based ecotourism activities, thus ensuring that the benefits of tourism reach all communities in the region.”
The meeting will be held in Cancún because of the potential that exists in the city to make tourism an engine of development for the rural communities that surround it.
The participation of at least 150 specialists is expected, and it will be held in the auditorium of the University. It is worth noting that the event will feature two keynote addresses. The first will take place on Oct. 5, and will be given by Prof. Elsa Esquivel Bazán, the Director of the Organization AMBIO, a co-op that for over 20 years has been dedicated to supporting community projects in the state of Chiapas. The second will be led by Dr. Diego Diaz Martin, Director for Mexico and Central America of Ashoka, a non-profit dedicated to the development of social enterprises globally.
Apart from these lectures, three panels from which the rural, private, academic and public sectors can share their experiences on initiatives that are currently underway in Quintana Roo will also take place, with which they seek to motivate other organizations to follow the steps to tourism that is responsible with the environment and rural communities in their country.
