Global Brigades is the world's largest student-led global health and sustainable development organization. As a nonprofit organization they work to empower student volunteers and professionals nation-wide to provide communities in developing countries with sustainable solutions that improve quality of life while respecting the local culture and improving the environment.
In 2008, Global Brigades sent more than 1,800 volunteers from 70 university clubs to travel and provide health and development solutions to more than 50,000 beneficiaries.
Earth Train partners with Global Business Brigades and Global Environmental Brigades to create and support projects in the community surrounding our Centro Mamoní campus. Earth Train and Global Brigades are also working together to create BISD - the Brigades Institute for Sustainable Development - which, as a collaboration between the organizations, has developed a workshop program that addresses issues in development within sensitive economic and cultural contexts. The first of these workshops - Systems Thinking with David Stroh - was held with great sucess in December, 2009 at Centro Mamoní.
