Last week, our Global Issues Network students learned about the history of water management along the Tisza River in East Hungary.
They took a tour of the floodplain that has been reclaimed from invasive species and they learned about the work that has been done to restore the natural habitat (and see the Hungarian gray cattle and water buffalo that now live there!).
The group saw how the village uses reclaimed biomass to heat the local municipal buildings and sell back into the energy networks.
After the tour, the village mayor hosted our students for a discussion, centered around AISB and our different service projects.
Global Issues looks forward to keeping up this connection with Tiszatarján, and finding ways to continue to support the work of the World Wildlife Fund.
