A few weeks ago, old classmates and friends had the opportunity to reunite and to meet colleagues from different cohorts in Rwanda during the first alumni gathering that Glocal organizes overseas. 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.
Yesterday Glocal hosted the yearly Joint Event that we organize together with our sister programs of the Braun School of Public Health & Community Medicine and the International School of Agricultural Sciences.
