VI Colombian Conference Shaping Colombia

We are pleased to invite you to attend the Sixth Colombian Conference – Shaping Colombia Toward Sustainable Development. This year’s conference is hosted by Harvard Colombian Student Society, MIT Colombian Student Association and Boston University Colombian Student Association and will take place in the three universities from April 5th to 7th in Boston and Cambridge, Massachusetts.
 
Colombia has set a roadmap to implement Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and multiple efforts have been made both in the public and private sectors toward achieving its milestones. Although there is still much to be done, numerous grass-roots organizations, public and private companies, and the government in Colombia are actively responding to the challenges posed by the SDGs. 
 
The 2019 Sixth Colombian Conference’s mission is to raise awareness and to help augment these initiatives. The conference will provide an academic setting to present recommendations and foster an open, critical, and interdisciplinary dialogue between stakeholders, scholars, students, and the general public.
 
The Conference will host eleven panels covering a wide array of topics related to the Sustainable Development Goals. Confirmed Keynote Speakers include Juan Manuel Santos, Nobel Peace Prize Winner and former President of Colombia; Brigitte Baptiste, Executive Director Alexander von Humboldt Biological Resource Research Institute; Simón Mejía, founder of musical band Bomba Estereo and Siembra; Juan Carlos Mora, CEO of Bancolombia and Elsa Noguera, Former Ministry of Housing, City and Territory.
