2010 – Booming Brazil

In September/October 2010 a group of 27 students traveled to Brazil for the study tour Booming Brazil. The students visited São Paulo, Manaus and Rio de Janeiro during the study tour. The theme of this study tour is “Foundations for a Sustainable Future”. Brazil is an interesting country to visit, because of the contrast between the relatively developed and capitalized South-east part, compared to the Western and Northern parts of the country. The major infrastructural plans made it also an interesting time to visit. The country needs to realize large infrastructural, water related and construction related projects in order to prepare for the FIFA Worldcup of 2014 and the Summer Olympic games of 2016.
