The encounter represented a fantastic opportunity to learn about local development initiatives and to identify potential opportunities for collaboration among the graduates of our program.

The location of the encounter and the Rwandese people were an essential part of the weekend in which 17 alumni from 5 cohorts and 7 countries participated.

During the evening, Hallel Elnir, a Glocal graduate, made a presentation on his internship in Ecuador that caught everyone's attention. He talked about the project in which he worked together with the Tsachila people, an indigenous community with ancient traditions, on solutions for their food security problems.
