The Amazonia Reset Labs are itinerant and thematic panel discussions held in peripherical neighborhoods and remote locations throughout the year in order to decentralize in-depth discussions and collaborate in the formation of community leaders originated from vulnerable populations.
Those labs were born as an addition to the Amazonia Reset original project, after some discussions pointed out that formative events were only held in Manaus central areas, although empowering and listening to peripherical leaderships.
