|What We Do
"We aim to strengthen the ties between Latin America, the United Kingdom and Europe, through panels of speakers, workshops, discussions and networking. This manifests itself in an annual
student-run Conference at the University of Edinburgh."
"The Forum creates a dynamic and interactive platform where students, academics and professionals with an interest in Latin America come together. It provides the unique opportunity to grow connections for internships, business or research partnerships."
"We are currently looking for speakers, student volunteers and sponsors for the 2018 Forum preferably with an interest in inequality in the Latin American region. Does this sound like you? More information to get involved can be found below."

As the topic suggests, the 2018 Forum will explore a selection of the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals, with a particular focus on the energy sector and potential solutions to gender and economic inequality within the Latin American Region. Our aim is to expand the Forum to a two-day event of panel sessions, case studies, workshops, and networking receptions, complemented by an internship or start-up fair for students and professionals alike to showcase the many opportunities in the region. Our detailed provisional agenda can be found here.
If you want to know more about what it was like to attend previous editions of the Forum, I would highly encourage you to check this video and our previous editions section on the website. We hope to see you there in 2018 and do not hesitate to get in touch or follow us on social media if you have any questions, suggestions, want to stay updated or wish to participate!"
