Meeting in Brasilia was the result of a partnership between UNESCO in Brazil, Petrobras, and the Fluminense Federal University.

The training sessions of the Third Sector Ethical Connections project ended in Brasília last Friday, 11 October 2019. For five days, representatives of 20 Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) participated in a program aimed at building a more participative and transparent management model in their areas of activity.

The activities included debates, technical exercises and the presentation of cases on topics such as regulatory environment, compliance principles, risk management in the Third Sector and dynamics of trade, assistance and social and environmental. The event was a partnership between UNESCO in Brazil, Petrobras, and the Fluminense Federal University.

According to Fábio Eon, UNESCO Coordinator of Humanities and Social Sciences in Brazil, the adoption of greater transparency and accountability in the use of resources is an asset for CSOs to ensure the sustainability of their projects.

"The training of managers aims at presenting tools and applications of methodologies that enable CSOs to achieve significant results in their work and contribute to a common agenda that promotes equal opportunities and social inclusion," he said.
