The University of Wisconsin and University of Guadalajara (UdeG) system campuses have a long, rich history of collaboration. In the past year, a multidisciplinary team of UW scholars were fortunate enough to have had the support of an IRIS-funded grant, titled “Connecting Landscapes,” to do some targeted work with UdeG colleagues to build an even stronger platform for ongoing collaboration, and to do some pilot programming in a Guadalajara high school related to youth environmental engagement under the Earth Partnerships model. These activities were centered around the development of the exciting new UdeG project, the Museo de Ciencias Ambientales, under the direction of UW Alum Eduardo Santana. Over the course of this past year or so, multiple exchanges between Wisconsin and Jalisco have launched work that will continue well past the life of the IRIS funding.
Join the grant project team for an informational, inspirational and celebratory presentation on Connecting Landscapes, which will include collaborators in Guadalajara participating virtually, as they explore long-term collaboration, work under the Institute for Regional and International Studies and exciting plans for the future.
