Home Renaissance Foundation's Annual Conference 2014 took place in Bogota, Colombia from December 3-5 2014.
The topic of the Conference was "Development & Sustainability: Care in Daily Life". The schedule included a day of workshops on different topics as well as a day and a half of conference and paper presentations.
It was co-hosted by the Universidad de la Sabana and Home Renaissance Foundation in association with INALDE's Culture, Work and Care Research Centre.
