The UFOP International Relations Office (DRI) welcomed Freddy Cáceres and John Hayes, representatives of the School of Public Policy of the University of Calgary, Canada.  Their visit lasted three days and served as an opportunity to plan future actions between both institutions.

They also attended presentations made by the graduate programs in Environmental Engineering (Proamb) and Crustal Evolution and Natural Resources (PPGECRN) and by the Group of Socio-Environmental Studies and Researches (Gepsa).
