4th May 2017: ‘Vivir bien’ – working with communities to shape development in Bolivia

LTU Bolivia TalkNikki Evans has worked as CAFOD’s Bolivia Programme Officer for over four and half years. A large part of her time with CAFOD has been spent living in La Paz working alongside communities and local Bolivian organisations.

She will be sharing experiences about the Andean concept of “vivir bien”, which is roughly translated as “living well”, and how organisations work with communities to ensure that they are shaping their own development in line with their own understanding of what that means.

This lecture is a free event hosted by Leeds Trinity University. BOOK HERE
