Among its various panelists we may highlight Víctor Inchausty, Regional Director of UICN; Brent Mitchell, president of the George Wright Society and member of the group specialized in protected areas of the UICN/CMAP; Jorge Nahuel, werkén (Mapuche tribe leader) of the Mapuche Confederation of Neuquén; Jim Barborak, co-director of the Center for Protected Area Management & Training from Colorado State University; José Quintana, President of the Costa Rican Network of Natural Reserves and Jim Levitt, Director of the Program on Conservation Innovation of Harvard University.

The experiences and proposals on Innovation for the Conservation of Biodiversity crossed six thematic lines: public policies, indigenous peoples, sustainable productive activities, sustainable tourism, natural laboratories for scientific research and education. Through case studies of protected areas in different countries, the participants were able to learn more about the different models of management and governance.

Our foundation took part in the management and organization of this congress, inviting diverse stakeholders to participate in the event, in structuring the presentations, in printing the material on Private Protected Areas (APP), communication support through a communications coordinator and the direct participation of our foundation in spreading this activity to the media and social networks.

At the same time, we wanted to contribute to the congress some actions of a cultural and educational nature. For this reason, we organized a photo exhibition for which we requested the partners of Así Conserva Chile some pictures of their APP (Protected Private Areas), which were exhibited during the congress, generating both a space of esthetic appreciation and knowledge of the members of the various APP that make up this professional association.
