Dialogue with clients, affiliates and neighbors to rethink CdS
With the purpose of sharing, identifying and getting to know the main problems and expectations so that the City of Knowledge can fulfill its role of contributing value to the future of the country and the region, a session was held in recent days with some of the affiliates, users, residents and neighbors of CdS, on how they visualize a better Panama (and the region) possible in the future and its role in achieving it.
The City of Knowledge Foundation worked closely with Dr. Julio Escobar, trustee member and former secretary of SENACYT, on the definition of the purpose and objectives of the City of Knowledge and its future years. That is why it intended to create a space for dialogue to hear recommendations on a future strategy and the elements that should be taken into account.
The proposed methodology allowed to collect information through a questionnaire that the guests got to fill online before meeting on Friday, September 1st. Once they were gathered, the guests were divided into 3 dialogue groups of no more than 10 people, with a facilitator each proposed by the FCdS and with Dr. Escobar alternating between the different groups.
"We are doing an exercise of reflection in which we are rethinking and imagining what will the City of Knowledge be in the coming years. The local and global environment is changing and with it we must adapt and review our strategies. The event was very enriching and committed us all to continue to configure the routes that we will jointly build in the context of our mission," said Jorge Arosemena, Executive President of the City of Knowledge Foundation.
