The IV edition of the Leadership School of the FIDAL Training Center for the Future was inaugurated last Saturday

.

After an arduous evaluation of applicants from all over the country, 51 young leaders were chosen to be part of the IV edition of the Leadership School of the FIDAL Foundation's Training Center for the Future (CFF), which opened on Saturday 26 May, at the Polinal Foundation, north of Quito.

.

"We want professional and upright politicians. Politicians who do not think about hurting the contenders, but about showing that they are better because they know how to serve, that is why they are here," said Rosalía Arteaga, president of FIDAL, in the opening ceremony, which they attended CFF sponsors and special guests.

.

The CFF maintains annual training and education programs in different areas, works with young scholarship holders in democratic values, entrepreneurship and projects, to act as catalysts of change for their communities and therefore for Ecuador.

.

The program is developed in a blended mode, with six face-to-face modules of 20 hours each, in addition to autonomous learning activities that are taught virtually and that represent an additional 20 hours.

.

Each module includes specialized talks, workshops and teamwork. The first module was carried out from May 25 to 27, in which it addressed: 'Personal and professional ethics' dictated by the doctor of jurisprudence and university professor Juan Morales; 'Prospectives towards a glocal world' by former President of the Republic Rosalía Arteaga; 'How to carry out projects' with the consultant and university professor Andrea Pazmiño; historian Gonzalo Ortiz spoke about 'The importance of historical dates'; the prominent chef and professor from different houses of study Édgar León gave the conference 'The Pride of being Ecuadorian', and 'The importance of planning' was given by the National Secretary for Planning and Development, José Augusto Briones.

.

Thanks to the support of public and private companies, and FIDAL's commitment to democracy to foster a generation of critical and transformative thinking, the CFF began another year together with young people who long for a better tomorrow for the country; the next module will take place from June 22 to 24.
