URACCAN, in partnership with the Ministry of Family, Community, Cooperative and Associative Economics (Mefcca) and the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources (Marena), conducted training for Agroforestry Engineering students and protagonists of state projects, on "Immortalized techniques to preserve insects and flowers".

Creative entrepreneurship

According to the Msc. Abner Figueroa, facilitator of the creative entrepreneurship workshop, this activity is focused on the immortalization of insects, with the aim of developing capacities to mefcca protagonists and students of the URACCAN to undertake in businesses that have to do with the preservation and care of insects and flowers, in this way they can also make use of the Center for Innovation and Intercultural Community Entrepreneurship , Slilma, for the exhibition of new creative and innovative projects.

For his part, Ariel Chacón, a technician at Mefcca, argued that these workshops are taking place in different communities and neighborhoods of the municipality of Puerto Cabezas and Waspam, in order that participants can have a space to undertake creatively, "Promote in the first place because there are ventures that look like they do not exist in the area (...) that's why what you're seeing is how to disscate insects and be able to offer them, to be able to sell them, for example, a chocorrón, an ant, dry them and then walk them like cadenitas," Chacón said.

Intercultural community articulation

URACCAN through the promotion of spaces of creation and entrepreneurship allows the student community to carry out innovative projects that contribute to the social and economic development of the Caribbean Coast, that is why it articulates works with instances that promote such proposals for youth and society in general to view in their own businesses, in this sense Ariel Chacón said that among the expectations proposed after the realization of these creative workshops, is that from the theory it will be put into practice, "There are more than 22 workshops both in the communities of Puerto, and in Waspam, for example, in Wawa Boom we hold a workshop on the elaboration of pijibay flour, that is why we have been promoting how we can add value to these products" , concluded the Meffca technician.
