The Training Center for the Future 2018 comes to an end

.

The CFF scholarship recipients enjoyed an enriching experience in the 5th module of the Leadership School, not only because of the quality of the speakers but also because of the cultural exchange offered by the city of Guayaquil. Now, young people are preparing for the closing of this edition, which will take place from October 26 to 28 in the capital of Ecuadorians.

.

The transfer of the School to the 'Pearl of the Pacific' meant that the scholarship recipients get to know closely the political actors and influential figures that inhabit the city and that their perspectives are debated face to face.

.

On September 29 and 30, personalities such as Fidel Márquez, rector of the ECOTEC Technological University, who reviewed the history of dollarization, attended the main hall of the Bolivarian Technological Institute (ITB) -the headquarters of this module. The former president of the Guayaquil Chamber of Commerce, Eduardo Peña Hurtado, joined in to explain the economic prospects of the port city, and Monsignor Luis Cabrera, Archbishop of Guayaquil to speak about the role of the Church.

The Guayaquil lawyer and communicator María Josefa Coronel gave a talk on freedom of expression; Fausto Ortíz, former Minister of Economy and Finance, spoke with the scholarship recipients about the impact of Guayaquil on the national economy, and Roberto Paissailague, former Minister of Education and Culture, addressed the current state of education in Ecuador.

.

In addition, the V Module unified a series of topics outside of the traditional, each one aimed at accumulating knowledge in the scholarship holders. For example, Eduardo Neira, Captain Endeavor National Geographic, explained the environmental situation of the Galapagos Islands. Likewise, there was a conference on healthy eating by Fernando Aguirre, president of the Ecuadorian Society of Cardiology. Nábila Agila explained the key points to obtain scholarships abroad.

They also received unexpected visits, such as that of the former president of Ecuador, Alfredo Palacios, with whom they had a long talk about their passage through national politics.

.

The afternoon of projects and coaching could not be missed with the experts Andrea Pazmiño and María Eileen Delgadillo, respectively.

The 2018 CFF will come to an end, this October, with the graduation of this generation of young people who have shown that, with preparation, a better country can be built.
