A group of NU students is participating in a Dialogue of Civilizations to Sao Paulo, Brazil, this summer ’13 semester, where they are going to learn the about different types of alternative energy technologies in the country that sources over 80% of its electricity by renewable technologies.
They will be visiting multiple renewable energy sites and meeting with industrial leaders who pioneered these technologies in Brazil. They will also be immersed in the Brazilian culture while learning about innovative alternative energy technologies.
Check out the blog to learn about their adventure: http://saopaulodialogue.blogspot.com/.
The group pictured here is featured on the Sao Paulo Governmental Energy website after a visit with the Secretary of Energy for the state of Sao Paulo.
