Montserrat Lara Sutulov works in Valdivia, Chile, promoting urban wetlands amongst local communities and raising awareness of their importance with partners and local authorities, and her organisation is a WLI member.  She is in the UK to attend the Global Environment Summer Academy, but took some time to visit us at WWT Slimbridge and meet with the Head of WLI.  She met with colleagues dealing with community engagement, communication and interpretation, education and took the chance to explore the site thoroughly.  Montse said:

'Visiting WWT Slimbridge was great! I really enjoyed meeting interesting people from different  WWT teams and looking at visitors really enjoy there time. I'm taking lots of great ideas and tips back home to Valdivia, Chile where we will try to implement them with our citizen led organization Red Ciudadana por los Humedales. Thank you WWT for the opportunity!!'
