In Todos Santos, the workshops were supported by the Association of Organizations of the Cuchumatanes (ASOCUCH), with the participation of community groups. In Cobán, the workshops were supported by community cooperatives from the region, such as the Federation of Cooperatives of Verapaces (FEDECOVERA) and in Jocotán, the workshops were held with the Copán Chorti Association and local agricultural cooperatives.

In each location, three workshops were held, on topics such as climate change (science, impacts and key concepts), ecosystems/ecosystem services and governance, which make up the main components of EbA.
