To finish up-dating you about the latest news of Vivamos el Bosque, I would like to share with you my experience at the United Nations Alliance for Civilizations (UNAOC) Summer School at Coimbra, Portugal!!
I was invited to participate at the UNAOC summer school held on August 5-13th in Portugal. I might admit I was lucky to be there and it has really been one of the most important experiences I had in my life so far. UNAOC promotes World peace, dialogue and understanding by presenting and uniting youth’s different perspectives and backgrounds. 135 youth were invited to participate, and Vivamos el Bosque was selected as part of the Education for Intercultural Dialogue workshop. I presented the biocentric foundation of Vivamos el Bosque and explained how environmnental education can promote dialogue and understanding in a multicultural and plurinational setting like Ecuador. After the presentation, we had a great discussion about the topic and I receive good feedbacks, and made some important contacts interested in contributing with Vivamos el Bosque initiative 🙂
I was already really happy with everything in Portugal. I met Baker, my co-fellow from Uganda and then, I found out that Florian and Katherin from D&F Academy, Germany were giving a talk and workshop at UNAOC! it was lovely to meet them and spend some time with them. It is always good to have my D&F family close!
