During our stay in Buenos Aires, we met with our dear friend Pedro Tarak, a pioneer member of Avina and co-founder of Emprendia, and his colleague Guillermo Schulmeier, CEO of Emprendia.
Together, we discussed ways and means to reconcile economic profit and environmental protection. Legal regulation and categories are definitely a big part of the solution.
We agreed that, beyond protection and sustainable management, we should aim at life regeneration of areas that were depleted or polluted by human activities.
We also sat with our friends and NGC counterparts in Argentina to assess challenges and opportunities for NGC in the Middle East and South America.
We discussed new projects that would both represent our vision and maximize our added value in terms of knowledge, network and socio-economic impact.
Together, we came up with a new idea designed to tap into the human and economic potential of the Arab diaspora in South America in the context of the Arab revolutions.
We are very excited; the research phase has already started. We will keep you updated!
