A video was made on collaborative processes with different cooperatives in the area. For this, a series of audio and video interviews were conducted with members of the following cooperatives: Ventanilla – Zapotalito – El Venado -Cacalote.

The video was edited so that it would serve as a learning tool for other cooperatives of the wetlands network and the cooperative that the Chichonal Volcano settlers want to start. It was presented to the assembly of cooperatives (Wetlands Network) of the coast to share social organization experiences and promote the exchange of knowledge and experiences.
