Citizen participation is an essential aspect of the governance we promote, and we aim to involve more municipalities in this effort. That’s why we have joined the interest of mayors in developing strategies and policies that increasingly involve society in the decision-making process of the government, stated Mayor Renán Barrera Concha.

The Mayor led the closing of the Intermunicipal Forum on Citizen Participation, which took place at the Colegio de Bachilleres del Estado de Yucatán (COBAY), Kanasín Campus. The forum aimed to share best practices and successful experiences regarding citizen participation mechanisms with other municipalities in the state and strengthen participatory democracy among peers.

Barrera Concha emphasized that the three forums held in Izamal, Maxcanú, and Kanasín were an opportunity to call on authorities and citizens to remain strong and united in generating greater progress opportunities for thousands of families in Yucatán.

In his speech, Barrera Concha mentioned that besides sharing positive results achieved in citizen participation, it is also crucial to involve more municipalities in Yucatán in this participatory task.

The Mayor of Kanasín, Edwin Bojórquez Ramírez, thanked and acknowledged the efforts of his counterpart in bringing and sharing successful programs from the City of Mérida to the municipalities in the interior of the state, positioning it as one of the best in the country.

Juan Pablo Campos González, Project Manager of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation in Mexico, commented that as a society, it is important to build alliances with responsible authorities that promote citizen participation with sustainable development practices that involve human progress.

Addressing the participants of this final forum in Kanasín, Barrera Concha highlighted that Mérida sets a good example of harmony and coexistence through the creation of the Secretariat of Citizen Participation, which significantly improves the organization of society’s suggestions and proposals for better decision-making.

He also reaffirmed his commitment to continue working with the authorities in Yucatán on this path to consolidate a common cause: the economic, social, and human development of the state.

The closing of the Intermunicipal Forum on Citizen Participation was attended by Raquel Balam Rocha, President of DIF Kanasín; Marco Pasos Tec, General Director of COBAY; Diego Cardos Rodríguez, Director of COBAY Campus Kanasín; Julio Sauma Castillo, Secretary of Citizen Participation; Fabiola García Magaña, Director of the Municipal Institute for Women, and Martín Uicab Flores, Director of Planning and Management.
