With an agenda in hand and several meeting underway, the currently proposed plan of action currently includes three main areas of work: work on a climate change law, oversight of the oil industry and education/awareness-raising awareness. Maria Gabriela Hernandez, chair of the Subcommittee on Climate Change highlighted the need to understand the current crisis and tomorrow's solutions. She further called on experts, scientists and academia to participate in the process saying "We are grateful and proud to have you.
