Results of the workshops held in 2018 by Colombia Challenge Your Knowledge network, Universidad Ean and Portland State University, WITH THE SUPPORT OF THE US EMBASSY IN COLOMBIA.

In February 2018, I had the opportunity to accompany an intersectoral mission to the city of Portland, Oregon, a point on the map of the United States, which was until then imperceptible when choosing destinations of academic interest. Today I am still surprised, what that city left in me: a feeling of well-being, clean air thanks to a planned arborization, transport systems designed for the community – including the most extensive and used cycling
network in the country – and especially , a university that has put in its missionary pillar knowledge at the service of the city.
