I am Carla Davila, I am from Ecuador. I am a firm believer in the possibility of improvement of the current conditions of the world. I advocate pursuing an economics approach that allows the development of social and environmental aspects. I believe that our efforts in the current reality should be directed to achieve equality and access to opportunities for all human beings. I think it is possible to integrate different models of economy and production to improve the quality of life of people.
