As a way to incentivize the student community, the institutional pedagogical model promotes academic events that promote collaborative learning, active participation and vocational training. In this sense, students of the SECOND year of Agroforestry Engineering of URACCAN Bilwi campus conducted on Monday the first Academic Forum of General Ecology.

According to the engineer Alexa Torres Thomas, teacher of the subject Ecology General, this forum invited teachers and students from III, IV and V year of Agroforestry Engineering to have analysis, reflection and participation jointly on environmental pollution and how it can be prevented by techniques learned in classrooms.

This is also part of the exchange of experiences, knowledge and knowledge among students. Therefore, the panellists were students of the second year of Agroforestry, who taught topics such as: "Soil pollution", "Use and types of pesticides", "Arguments for and against pesticides" and "Threats to wildlife and human health".

The forum was initiated by student Dania González Duarte, who gave a summary of soil pollution and what are the best alternatives to avoid it; then continued William Devis Waldiman, who gave a brief overview of the use, types, arguments for and against pesticides; and finally Kendy Molina Chavarría concluded with the in-depth details about wildlife and how the agricultural border has threatened endangered animals, and explained about human health.

According to Torres, academic planning uses "creative environments, innovation, to encourage reflections in our students; in the subject I always try to integrate them, that they are interactive, where students can be protagonists of learning", that is why these kinds of academic activities are carried out.

At the conclusion of the exhibitions, a discussion room, questions and answers were formed, as well as analysis and reflections on the current state of the environment: how from solid waste, despale, pesticide mis management has long deteriorated Mother Earth.
