Impact Narrative

Raquel writes to Speak Out, “I work as a researcher in the Environmental Engineering Research Center at the University of los Andes in Bogotá. With several students we share information an plan to do some researches in order to conserve some of the most degraded forest in Colombia, taking into account the impacts on climatic change. We also try to persuade other people to improve their consume habits, we need to be more and more responsable with sour home, sour planet!!!

If I get the books I can share some of them with people from the cities who are the most consumers, other with people from rural areas to protect our forest. The strategy will be to share this book with leaders that can show the problem to the citizens, we can do some talks with those people.”
