La Haya (nov. 1/18). As part of the Promotional Plan of Colombia Abroad, the Embassy of Colombia to the Kingdom of the Netherlands held a multidisciplinary event about the Chiribiquete National Park in the Institute for Water Education, IHE Delft.

On the occasion of the declaration of the Serranía del Chiribiquete National Natural Park as a Cultural and Natural world heritage by Unesco, the Embassy of Colombia organized a conference with Dr. Antoine Cleef, a Dutch Emeritus Professor of the University of Amsterdam, who worked more than 45 years in the Colombian moors and greatly contributed to the knowledge of these Colombian ecosystems.

As a complement to Dr. Antoine Cleef's lecture, the documentary "Chiribiquete: videography of an expedition to the center of the world" was screened, which is part of the Colombia BIO series and seeks to provide a view outside the conventions of a scientific documentary, allowing the audience to generate a personal idea of the expedition and, in general, the history of this National Park.

More than 100 guests attended the event, among which stands out the Diplomatic Corps accredited in The Hague and members of the academic community.
