Cecília Fernandes de Vilhena

Manager of protected areas of the Minas Gerais State Forest Institute (Instituto Estadual de Florestas de Minas Gerais)

Attended course: Planning and Managing Tourism in Protected Areas, Colorado State University

“Thank you for the great opportunity that Semeia has offered me to participate in the course in Colorado through its scholarship program. Certainly, this program has been multiplying ideas and actions to plan and promote our parks throughout the country, in the most appropriate way, to transform them into areas increasingly valued by all Brazilians. I myself presented the experience gained in the course in November, during the VII Minas Gerais’ State Units Managers Annual Meeting, in the State Park of Rio Doce. There were approximately 85 participants, among them PA's managers, regional coordinators, and technicians of the Board of Protected Areas of the State Institute of Forests of Minas Gerais. (Diretoria de Áreas Protegidas do IEF {Instituto Estadual do Florestas}).”
