Blugold Briefing


Blugolds hike through a family farm in the community of La Libertad, learning about the agroforestry system. Gaining global perspective in Ecuador

Can the actions of one Blugold make an impact globally? Brian Kraegenbrink thinks so. After living with a host family in the Amazonian rainforest in Ecuador, the UW-Eau Claire geography major now is considering how he can facilitate change through his day-to-day actions, as well as how he might use his college degree to make a difference in the lives of people living in underprivileged communities around the globe. His homestay was part of a three-week immersion program in Ecuador, an experience he says gave him a peek into the global capitalist system in which the world operates, and an up-close look at how consumer demand and westernization can leave some populations marginalized and living in poverty with little chance for change.
