Participation in side events of UN conferences

Damanhur Education APS had the opportunity to present about the twinship with Guede Chantier in Senegal during side events of two important conferences of the United Nations: the Human Rights Council in Geneva on September 27, 2016, and the Cop 22 in Marrakech on November 16, 2016, which was possible thanks to Damanhur’s participation in the Global Ecovillage Network (GEN). GEN has a consultative status with one of the  organs  of the United Nations called the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).

Macaco Tamerice (Martina Grosse Burlage) President of Damanhur Education APS was invited to speak specifically about the workshop for food preservation organized in Guede Chantier by Damanhur Education APS in March 2016. The project represents a concrete contribution for the implementation of several Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations such as no hunger, gender equality, education, good health and well-being.
