Challenges encountered or foreseen to implement the Convention:
José Márcio Barros: To expand the processes of training of cultural administrators with a focus on cultural diversity through Distance Learning processes.
José Márcio Barros: To contribute with the strengthening and monitoring of transnational culture public policies, effectively regional, with an emphasis on Latin American countries.
Giordana: Appropriation by civil society, as a major contribution toward actions of social participation based on the principles and goals of the convention; it becomes a greater hindrance in cultural sectors that have a diffuse cultural conformation.
Wellington: The lack of incentive to small groups and/or companies in the hinterlands of each Brazilian state still persists. It is also important to conduct a more careful or strict monitoring process for the conduction of those programs and projects.
Solutions found or envisaged:
(JMB) Setting up a distance learning course geared toward Brazilian and other Latin American participants.
(JMB) Establishing partnerships with research organisms and universities in the region, building indicators and research focused on reports from Latin American countries in 2005 Convention, and related documents, especially UDELAR in Uruguay and ISA Cuba.
(Giordana) Board member training courses focused on concepts aligned with the Convention is another possible solution.
(Giordana) In Addition to virtual platforms – following the example of the collaborative platform of CNPC – it is important to associate the actions of online social participation with the present-form practices/channels/participative spaces.
(Giordana) the actions in board instances and other social audience spaces must prioritize transparency. It is important to own these communication channels and keep them updated.
Activities planned for next 4 years to implement the Convention:
(JMB) Publication and updating of the Observatory website with news, information about courses, seminars, congresses and other activities, timeline of the 2005 Convention, research and reading suggestions.
