Silvia studied ecology in Pontificia Universidad Javeriana, in Bogotá, Colombia. Since then, she has been working on the field doing research with local communities focusing on rural areas development. Also she is interested in outdoor education because, in field trips during college, she realized this is the best way to understand what happens around and make a change. For this reason, 3 years ago she joined the OBA team and she has been working with experiential education with school trips.
She loves working with children and youth, getting to know places, cultures and the social and ecological story hidden behind them.
