On April 12, 2012 we launched the first ALAS-IDB Awards ceremony in the auditorium Napoleon de la Rosa in the Technological University of Bolivar in Cartagena, Colombia. This ceremony was held in the framework of the Summit of the Americas and was attended by Shakira and President of the Inter-American Development Bank, Luis Alberto Moreno, who handed out the awards.
