The Annual Meeting of the United Kingdom Belize Association took place at the Latin American Centre on Saturday 7th October. The day consisted of a series of research presentations on environmental and societal issues concerning Belize, and a screening of the new film Yochi by the director Ilana Lapid.
The United Kingdom Belize Association (UKBA) provides a focus for people who are working or interested in Belize, and aims to stimulate and to encourage activities that benefit Belize and help to raise its profile within the UK and internationally. The Association is international in its reach and membership, and offers an opportunity in the UK for sharing current research and discussion on environmental and societal issues in Belize. In conjunction with the Belize High Commission in London, this is principally channelled through annual meetings, where the results of research activities and projects covering a wide range of topics and interests are presented.
