The bustling city of Cancun is set to host an unprecedented event aimed at tackling the pressing environmental challenges faced by the state of Quintana Roo. The State Environmental Protection Agency (PPA) will hold the inaugural Forum on Environmental Justice 2023 on June 1st and 2nd at the prestigious Universidad del Caribe. This forum, scheduled in conjunction with the upcoming World Environment Day celebrations on June 5th, promises to foster a much-needed dialogue between the government and the people.
The forum, running from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., aims to present legal tools to ensure the fundamental right to a healthy environment. With the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) choosing Quintana Roo as the venue for the World Environment Day celebration, it is a fitting setting for this critical discussion. The forum intends to strengthen the ties between the government and society in their shared commitment to the preservation of the region's precious natural resources.
