Transatlantic Dialogues

From Paris to the Amazon, Pour Le Brésil's “Transatlantic Dialogues” program aims to constitute a front for academic and cultural exchange by promoting a space for dialogue between Amazonian students and Sciences Po Paris students. Our scholarship program is an opportunity to give prominence to Amazonian youth in Europe, promoting their demands and proposals, in addition to proposing a training program for current and future leaders in the region. In addition, we also want Sciences Po students to be able to learn and understand the reality of the Amazon with people who are there, experiencing the challenges of the region.
