Then there was space to the interventions, questions and suggestions of the public. The interventions were numerous and in general positive regarding the expectations created by the project.

The aim of this meeting was to promote the active participation of all stakeholders in relation to the territory and the actions implemented in the project. It had a large audience (over a hundred) , the room was almost full and the public was very involved, the meeting can therefore be considered a success.

This event will be succeeded by others where we hope the project continues to generate interest among the local population.
