Fighting for harmony with Mother Earth

In celebration of May 15, Agricultural Day, at URACCAN campus New Guinea Teacher Wilson Calero, head of Research and Postgraduate, offered a conference entitled "Agricultural production and practice of adaptation to climate change, challenges and opportunities in New Guinea", where the study of Veterinary Medicine and Agroforestry Engineering participated.

The event was held in the Luz en la Selva library, recalling the importance of working for mother earth's care. The speaker reflected on what can be done to change the environmental situation, creating that we must "work on the goodness of forestry, develop livestock systems under a silvopastoril approach, responsible agriculture using well-yielding Creole seeds that adapt easily." Calero also referred to the need to care for water and work hand in hand with the producer.

For its part, the PhD. Eugenio López, vice-chancellor of the New Guinea precinct, said that this event "recognizes Mother Earth as the main food supplier of all that we consume as humanity", which is raised in the URACCAN Mission, promoting harmony with Mother Earth, which is a way to "honor all the men and women who work the land and the professionals of the agronomy branch".

Meanwhile, Master Filadelfo López, coordinator of the Area of Natural Resources and Environment, congratulated agronomists and professionals in agricultural sciences, noting that "celebrating May 15 is not just celebrating Agronomist Day is celebrating the effort, dedication, sweat of all producing families generating agricultural production, livestock, basic grains , roots and tubers".
