HOLATAM – A New International Student Project Focuses on Latin America

We are excited to unveil a new fifth International Student Project: HOLATAM allows students to explore the dynamic culture and business environment of Latin America.

HOLATAM is the newest International Student Projects launched by students of the FHNW School of Business. The inaugural edition of HOLATAM will focus on the challenges and opportunities of sustainable production and consumption in Latin America. Specifically, the students will examine the agriculture and tourism sectors in Colombia and Peru in order to learn about innovative approaches to issues of sustainability and to gather insights from exploring new cultures.


The first HOLATAM project team: back row from left to right: Seline Azizaj, Jeanne Gross and Natalija Paunovic. Front row from left to right: Doruntina Mrlaku, Marie-Theres Lutz and Tabea Karrer.

After an intensive one-week seminar in Switzerland in February 2023, the HOLATAM delegation will travel to South America from 30 March – 16 April to gain first-hand insights into future-oriented initiatives in some of the world’s most dynamic environments.

We look forward to an exciting start to this one-of-a-kind project!
