VIVE19.02 Discovering the Soul of Mexico, Michoacan Morelia 03/07/2019 / 16/07/2019 SOCI/ENVI + 18

About the project

In the state of Michoacan, the low level of education, the deficiency of environmental awareness and the lack of intercultural engagement have hindered the development of local economy. This situation affects all levels of the society. For that reason, the institute of Tecnologico de Morelia engages in the efforts of organizing activities with the international volunteers and their students to promote entrepreneurship, multiculturalism and create a global vision. The institute has developed a methodology which helps creating life projects for the youth. For that purpose they focus on the prevention of bullying, dropping out of school and early pregnancies. On the other hand, there are environmental problems that require immediate action such as extinction of certain species of trees and animals due to deforestation and habitat loss. These two aforementioned issues will be the main focus of the workcamp.
