Visit to the University of Quindío


During his tour, visiting selected Universities with a strong focus on environment and sustainable development, Christoph Nowicki was invited by the University of Quindío, Colombia (from August 7th to August 13th 2019). First discussions on cooperation options for the development of a new study programme on forest management and conservation, started in 2018 during a visit of a Colombian delegation in Eberswalde, thanks to the initiative of Norbert Pudzich, German Honorary Consul in Armenia. Now, first concrete steps towards a living cooperation have been intensively discussed and defined with the heads of faculties, study programmes and the Rector, how strongly supports the cooperation. In 2020, the University of Quindío will offer internships (in cooperation with partner institutions) for IFEM-students but would also like to cooperate with the study programmes on Global Change Management and Forestry System Transformation.
