President Andrés Manuel López Obrador inaugurated in Atoyac, Guerrero, the Benito Juárez University for Well-being, which teaches Agroforestry Engineering. As it is his custom, AMLO did not wear a face mask at any time during the event.
The purpose of the degree is to train professionals who can propose viable alternatives for local and regional agri-food and forestry production; with a critical vision of the environment, sustainability, and food sovereignty, capable of generating processes of community collaboration for the well-being and quality of life of society.
