||Chapingo Unido por el Ambiente (CHAUPEA) is a student organization formed in 2014 by students of the Forestry and Natural Resources careers of the Universidad Autónoma Chapingo as an initiative that seeks to “provide students with a platform to develop their own research projects, in addition to maintaining a relationship with society through its results and the activities carried out, which allow the development of skills and abilities that are required as future professionals. “
The symposium was aimed at students of forestry and related sciences who belong to the International Forestry Students Association (IFSA). Also, to Latin American students who do not belong to IFSA in order to increase the participation of this region within the association, through the link with the Latin American Association of Forest Science Students (ALECIF). The objective was to exchange knowledge about forest resources.
The symposium lasted sixteen days from 5-21 August 2018 in which workshops, cultural exchanges, assemblies, visits to archaeological sites, companies and field trips were held. 68 students from 28 different countries participated.
