VUBToday: Vrije Universiteit Brussel starts collaboration with Bolivia

Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) starts up a new project with the Universidad Católica Boliviana “San Paulo” (UCB) in La Paz. During the ten year cooperation professors from Flanders and Bolivia, together with the local population, will carry out research to improve the quality of life in fragile rural and urban regions in Bolivia. They will focus on contemporary Bolivian challenges such as street youth, water pollution and shortage, and indigenous people’s rights. The development project will be officially launched at a kick-off event in U-residence on the VUB campus on March 28th, from 14:00 to 17:00.  read more on VUB Today
