Four journalism students from Northwestern University in Qatar traveled to Rio de Janeiro this summer to examine how Brazil's second largest city is recovering from rapid urbanization, focusing on how the local government deals with the mountains of garbage produced by the metropolitan's more than 12.5 million inhabitants.
Northwestern University in Qatar was founded in 2008 by parent organization Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, USA in partnership with Qatar Foundation. NU-Q draws on Northwestern University's distinguished schools of communication, journalism, and liberal arts to educate students for leadership positions in the rapidly evolving global media industry.
As part of its active role in the development of a 21st century knowledge-based economy in Qatar, NU-Q engages in research, thought leadership, and service relevant to Qatar, the Middle East, and the global community.
