Sharing about the Good Living
By: Jindriska Mayorga Polanco
Alex Furtner, Selin Baran and Ricarda Sutter are three students originally from Austria, who visited URACCAN, in their university campus Las Minas, with the aim of potentializing their knowledge of indigenous, Afro-descendant and mixed-race peoples.
Nubia Rocha, project officer of Horizon3000, said the Austrian internship is a pilot program called Borrowed Technical Assistants. 80% of your time will be dedicated to URACCAN and 20% to another country on request.
Rocha asked the trainees to be our ambassadors when they return to Austria, asking them to "share that experience they are living in Nicaragua, specifically at URACCAN," he said.
For her part, the Rector of URACCAN Alta Hooker Blanford, spoke with young people about the good life of peoples, in addition to the functioning of the Intercultural Community University and the relationships that are had with the Network of Indigenous, Intercultural and Community Universities of Abya Yala (RUIICAY).
In addition, Alex Furtner, who studied International Development and Economic Partner, said that the exchange of experiences and alliances are important, because they allow to know the culture of other countries. "It would be good if you can travel and experience another culture from here too, and it's very important what you do here with the Good Live," he said.
At the end of the conversation, the passers-by took a tour of the enclosure, knowing the areas and the operation of each of them.
