KNOW US

This year we renewed our Scientific Council and incorporated advisers from institutions that day by day fight for the conservation of nature. It has also been a year in which we managed to develop basic infrastructure that will support academic work and we were able to start the selection and allocation of physical facilities.

Thus, considering the progress made in this year, we hope to achieve several objectives in 2019 and 2024 to strengthen our scientific and social work.

MISSION AND HISTORY.

PRESENTATION:

This year we renewed our Scientific Council and incorporated advisers from institutions that day by day fight for the conservation of nature. It has also been a year in which we were able to develop basic infrastructure that will support academic work and we were able to start the selection and allocation of physical facilities.

Thus, considering the progress made in this year, we hope to achieve several objectives in 2019 and 2024 to strengthen our scientific and social work.

BACKGROUND:

  • BIOFUTURE was a youth organization with the objective of spreading scientific knowledge to promote the conservation of our natural resources.

  • Founded in the Colón Regional University Center on July 11, 2008, BIOFUTURE is an organization legitimately recognized by the University of Panama as stated in Resolution VAE-DAE-07-08-09 of the Vice-rector for Student Affairs of August 13 2009.

  • The BIOFUTURE Research Association has organized since 2009 Meetings of Young University Students for the Environment and Sustainable Development at the local, National and Latin American level. In these meetings, the need for young people to receive training that strengthens their participation in the implementation of environmental initiatives is evident.

MISSION AND VISION:

MISSION

Ensure sustainable use, conservation of natural resources, environmental quality, scientific development and the integration of society through environmentally friendly practices.

VISION

To develop multidisciplinary scientists who put their scientific capacities to solve problems of an environmental nature in function of others and who work in PRO of the conservation of our resources.

OBJECTIVE OF NEW FACES OF SCIENCE:

Scientific development focused on environmental problems, taking into account as the main actor the communities surrounding scientific development as a missing link in conservation.

ORGANIZERS:

The BIOFUTURE Research Association was organized, with the technical assistance of Doctor Francisco Farnum Castro from the School of Biology of the Regional University Center of Colón, at present we are a national network or BASE MADRE organization organized by a Board of Directors that is divided into Chapters by the provinces of the national territory and the chapters in the same way are divided into GIT (thematic interest groups) this for the development of specific ideas.

The BIOFUTURE Research Association is a research and education proposal whose mission is to contribute to the training of students of the Biology Career and environmentalists, the development of capacities for citizen empowerment in environmental and sustainability issues. It is an association that is recognized as an educational laboratory, flexible, dynamic and in permanent construction.

GIT's

What are they?

Thematic Interest Groups (GIT) are precisely each of the approaches from which you want to do conservation work.

Around which areas can a Thematic Interest Group (GIT) be organized?

To any area related to Biology, Environment and / or Conservation.

Who make them up?

An organized group of students, together with at least one specialist advisor in the area to which the GIT is directed.

They have a simple structure:

A leader, a sub-leader, at least one advisor, who acts as the first consultant, and a group of at least eight (8) people.

What does a Thematic Interest Group (GIT) do?

It organizes study and conservation activities around the specific theme of the GIT.
