PUP’s First In-person Staff Retreat and Conference Presentation in Costa Rica

In June 2022, PUP will be presenting a panel and individual presentations at the International Association for Society and Natural Resources Conference in June, Costa Rica. Around the conference PUP will be organizing a three-day field trip to sites where PUP has presence. It will be holding a staff retreat and board meeting and perhaps some ancillary training workshops as well. This will be PUP´s first in-person board meeting and retreat since its founding in 2013 and a wonderful time to really showcase our work. Please join us, organized by our Costa Rican country office.
