The theme for the afternoon is “proposals to strengthen social control of the use and repartition of the benefits of biodiversity”. Each region of the Growing Diversity project presented some of their proposals which then were debated and discussed.

In the evening the participants visited a local handicraft market. The highlight of the night was the “Forró”(Brazilian dance music) of biodiversity.
