Encuentro, the community space, submissions

Submissions are open for Encuentro, the space at the conference dedicated to community involvement and grassroots activism.  

Encuentro, meaning ‘meeting’ or ‘gathering’ in Spanish, is a place where community activists, civil society, local organisations and others come together with scientists, researchers and policy-makers to rally for a common cause.

Open to the public free of charge, Encuentro will host events, encourage discussion and inspire activism and change.

Participation is open to individuals and local and international groups of all sizes who are committed to improving lung health for everyone.


Submissions are now closed as of 25 May 2017
