The first Colombian Coffee for Science event will bring together global scientists whose insights will help illuminate a discussion and facilitate a call to action regarding the Amazon´s critical situation, at the national, community and personal level.
This event is co-hosted by the Colombian Science Diplomacy Network and the Colombian Consulate in Boston, with special support from the Harvard Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, Juan Valdez and community partners. Colombian Coffee Federation Inc. will provide the coffee.
