Bolivian Workshop, in the framework of the UNESCO-Sida programme, to mobilize and build national capacities to participate effectively in Future Earth.
UNESCO is organizing the first of a series of national workshops in the Plurinational State of Bolivia.The goal of the workshop will be to pave the ground to connect existing knowledge held by multiple stakeholders in Bolivia and explore further synergies between indigenous and local knowledge and science in relation to build further the action oriented knowledge needed to accelerate the transition to sustainable development.

A series of regional visits covering institutions in La Paz, Cochabamba and Santa Cruz de la Sierra will complement the workshop and will provide further insights on the conditions needed to transition from knowledge creation to knowledge application, with a particular attention on the involvement of local communities.
