For the first time since the beginning of 2020 we could meet on site at the Zurich University of Teacher Education.
We were honored to host HE Ambassador Tenzin Rondel Wangchuk and his team.
The president and the Board members gave an overview over the projects and activities since 2020 and the coming events and projects of 2021.
Finally we had the chance to say thank you to our former president Marianne Frei (2009 - 2020) and our former treasurer Rosmarie Frey (2010 - 2020) for their tremendous work and extraordinary performance. We could also offer our thanks to our former Board member Hanspeter Bürgi (2014 - 2020).
Dechen Lham (PhD student at the University of Zurich) gave an interesting and well presented insight in her research work and the findings on Snow Leopards in Bhutan.

A young teacher from the city is sent to Lunana and reluctantly makes his way through the spectacular mountain world. Once there, he meets a community that regards him with respect. Only a teacher can "touch the future of the children". And love flickers quietly. The beautiful feature film from Bhutan was shot at 3,400 m above sea level with solar energy and amateur actors who attend the most remote school in the world.
