A formal collaboration agreement was established between The Sustainability Laboratory and the College of Natural Resources of the Royal University of Bhutan, to advance sustainability in alpine ecosystems through research, education, and project development activities.
The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) agreement was established during a virtual signing ceremony that took place on the morning of August 5th, 2021. Michael Ben-Eli, founder of The Sustainability Laboratory, and Dasho Nidup Dorji, Vice Chancellor of the Royal University of Bhutan, signed the agreement. The ceremony was attended by various faculty from the University; The Labâ€™s core team, Board members, and Advisors; as well as Tashi Dorji, Chairman of the National Council of Bhutan. Tashi, a former intern of The Lab, was instrumental in facilitating the collaboration between the two organizations.
This collaboration represents an important milestone in the development of The Lab as a global network of activity centers, across different eco-zones around the world.
We look forward to a fruitful collaboration with our new colleagues in Bhutan.
