In 1998, young people took the lead in the Earth Charter consultation process in Cuba through the Brigadas Tecnicas Juveniles. The group engaged other groups and representatives from a variety of sectors including parliament, academia, professional associations, religious groups, NGOs, and the National Council for Sustainable Development. They organized a number of activities to promote awareness about the Earth Charter and generate input to the international consultation process.
The National Conference of the Young Technicians Brigade took place in 1999. Young Cuban professionals who were interested in being involved with the Earth Charter process in Cuba participated in this event. They shared their perspectives on the Earth Charter Draft, and discussed how to incorporate this vision as part of their work and activities.
