Supporting Rural Youth Leadership in Colombia’s Agriculture Sector

Over the course of eight months, 36 students from a rural school in Colombia participated in a photography project to reflect on their territory, the peculiarities of their municipality, and the dynamics that affect them. Through a critical lens, they showcase their challenges and opportunities that may enable or facilitate their inclusion in the territorial development agenda. This project was carried out to fulfill the thesis requirements in the doctoral studies of Margarita Fontecha, supervised by Professor Silvia Sarapura Escobar.
