A partnership agreement has been reached with the National University (UNA) of Costa Rica for their participation in the STOREM project. Through UNA’s Mesoamerican Center for Sustainable Development in the Dry Tropics (CEMEDE), an interdisciplinary academic unit at Chorotega Regional Headquarters, UNA will develop a new Master’s program in Sustainable Tourism as part of the project. On July 19 at the Chorotega Regional Headquarters, the new STOREM project was presented at the Guanacaste Colloquia to a regional community of academics from UNA and the University of Costa Rica (UCR). The Guanacaste Colloquia seek to promote a community of researchers who meet to dialogue about research that has already been completed or is in progress. UNA’s promotional campaigns for the new Master’s program will also encourage student enrollment and promote the participation of local companies in the tourism sector.
