Kria dalan – Sustainable development in Timor-Leste through knowledge sharing

Lecture | suitable for youth/adults

How can students contribute to the implementation of the UN Sustainable development goals? Kria dalan represents a different approach to conventional aid. The organization is building bridges between students in Norway and Timor-Leste aiming to provide development in one of the youngest nations in the world. Timor-Leste became independent in 2002 after 25 years of indonesian occupation. Today, the country is suffering from poverty and lack of infrastructure.

Kria dalan aims to use methods from the NTNU-subject Experts in Teams (EiT) in order to facilitate project work between students and young farmers in Timor-Leste. During this talk, volunteers from Norway and Timor-Leste will discuss the situation in the country today and how international student cooperation can contribute to a better world.
