Open Information Forums
Isthmus of Tehuantepec, Oaxaca

The mobile exhibition, presented in January 2019 in Oaxaca, was accompanied by two open information forums and was the product of the master's thesis research of three Mexican students specialized in landscape architecture, critical conservation, urban design, and risk and resilience.

The forums, held in the Ciudad Ixtepec's reading room and Juchitan de Zaragoza's "El Ocote" cultural center, aimed to promote dialogue between the researchers and the participating population. Each session was free and open to the public, including an in-depth presentation of the exhibition's results and an extensive question-and-answer session.
