Three STUDENTS of the master Governing the Large Metropolis, Anna Fechtor, Hillary Birch, Maria Giorda and Natalie Boychuk from the Columbia University have been selected among the finalists (top 5 teams) in the 2019 Geneva Challenge. CONGRATULATIONS!

The Geneva Challenge is an international competition for graduate students : "Eager to stimulate reflection and innovation on development from diverse disciplinary and contextual perspectives and with the generous support of Ambassador Jenö Staehelin, the Graduate Institute Geneva launched, in 2014, the Advancing Development Goals Contest." 

One team is selected from each continent, and this year, our students will represent Europe! 
They have developed a formal proposal for an urban health intervention addressing infectious disease in informal settlements in Accra, with a specific focus on urban governance.

At the end of September, they will travel to Geneva to compete for first place in front of a jury. We wish them good luck.
