Group Documento´s team has recently presented important papers for the disclosure of the company´s Cultural Diplomacy strategy in international events. Dr Erika Robrahn-Gonzalez was invited last March to represent Brazil in the “World Wood Day Symposium”, which was held in Xianyou, Fujian Province, China.

In April Dra. Erika participated in the 79th. Annual Meeting of The Society for American Archaeology, held in Austin, Texas – USA. The event was an important opportunity for the presentation of two panels regarding archaeology and cultural risk:
