A second seminar took place in March 2009, during which a cooperative mechanism was established in order to develop a strategy to ensure the preservation and development of trails, leisure and outdoor recreational areas.

The objectives of the Cooperative Mechanism for Preserving and Developing Trails, Leisure and Outdoor Recreational Areas are the following:  
  • Build an enduring collaboration among all the actors involved in leisure and outdoor activities and mobilize them;
  • Provoke government collaboration concerning leisure and outdoor activities under the leadership of the MELS, in accordance with its mission;
  • Develop a common viewpoint concerning orientation and areas of intervention;
  • Propose concerted action in response to the different challenges addressed;
  • Make the general public aware of the concerns surrounding leisure and outdoor activities.
