Fourteen provinces participated at the third edition of Management for Development

With more than 430 participants, a new edition of the CFI Federal Training Program has come to an end. Young people from Buenos Aires, Chaco, Chubut, Córdoba, Entre Ríos, Formosa, Jujuy, La Pampa, La Rioja, Mendoza, Misiones, San Juan, Santiago del Estero and Tierra del Fuego attended the third edition of the program focused on strengthening a federal network of leaders throughout Argentina.

The program has four modules: masterclasses, provincial panels, integration sessions and project design workshops. The workshops and masterclasses are held virtually with participants from all provinces, providing a space for engagement between keynote speakers and young people from different regions of our country.

Meanwhile, sessions and panels are held in person in different locations of the provinces where each provincial group made up of 30 people gathers. At these meetings, young people have the opportunity to come into contact with provincial and municipal officials, specialists in various topics and executives and workers of companies and organizations that are committed to innovation and development. The goal is to share experiences and learn more about the lessons and discussions of the virtual meetings.

The closure of this third edition took place in December in Buenos Aires, where the attendees presented their projects prepared during the workshops and visited companies and institutions related to the social, productive, industrial and technological development of the country.
