Olman Segura-Bonilla, Danida alumni and former Cabinet Minister of Labor and Social Security of Costa Rica is a first mover and fierce believer in sustainable development economics. His impressive career and Costa Rica’s path of development are closely interlinked.
Danida Alumni Network
Eight Danida alumni were amongst the 1000 young talents from 163 countries to take part in the annual innovation lab UNLEASH 2019 in Shenzhen, China.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the planned DAN workshop in Copenhagen for representatives from all of the 12 established local alumni networks had to be postponed. As an alternative, we invited the representatives to a series of online meetings to cover some of the original workshop topics and share experiences from the global pandemic.
As a new initiative, Danida Alumni Network is inviting Danida alumni change makers to facilitate online forums for fellow alumni and their Danish partners. The forum topics address one or more of the Sustainable Development Goals. We will start with Peter Okwoko and his colleague Paige Balcom who make face shields from recycled plastic bottles in Gulu, Uganda.
