Knowing and understanding the environment, territories, cultures, and traditions to improve ourselves and the world we inhabit are crucial aspects of development cooperation. Those issues are dear to us, and we are constantly committed towards them.
This summer we want to reflect on the importance of our work and to live personal and collective experiences that can help us grow.
In this newsletter we take you to Bosnia Herzegovina, where we are working for the protection of unique natural environments and where in August we will climb Mount Konjuh with students from two countries to learn about biodiversity, and then to Ethiopia, where we are carrying out many humanitarian assistance activities in Tigray, in the Borena region, in the Somali region and in Beni Shangul to respond to the very serious drought and conflict that hit the country, together with actions that seek to support development opportunities, such as, for example, an important research on social norms and their changes; and finally to Pavia, Italy, where we have just celebrated the first 25 years of the Master in Cooperation and Development.
Between 22 and 24 August 2022, a group of 25 students from the University of Trento will hike to the top of Konjuh mountain (Bandijerka 1209 masl), climb the recently developed Via Ferrata Paolo Dieci, and visit Stećci medieval tombstone/necropolis, the Girl's cave and the Paucko lake in the wonderful nature of Konjuh Protected Landscape, in Bosnia Herzegovina.

A wide-ranging project on development, promotion and facilitation of inclusive access to higher education on human and sustainable development for civil society actors and civil servants.
