واشنطن، 30 نوفمبر 2022 / PRNewswire / — يتشرف معهد الولايات المتحدة للسلام ( USIP ) بإعلان حصول ماريا يوجينيا موسكيرا رياسكوس من كولومبيا على جائزة النساء يبنين السلام لعام 2022 .

قالت ليز غراندي ، الرئيسة والرئيسة التنفيذية لمعهد الولايات المتحدة للسلام، “تكرم جائزة المرأة لبناء السلام النساء ذوات الالتزام الاستثنائي والقيادة والتأثير اللواتي يعملن على بناء السلام وحل النزاعات العنيفة في مجتمعاتهن”. تُمنح هذه الجائزة السنوية المرموقة احتفالًا بالنساء اللائي يقمن ببناء السلام في البلدان المتضررة من النزاعات.

وقال غراندي: “ماريا يوجينيا موسكيرا رياسكوس هي بطلة للعدالة والكرامة والسلام في كولومبيا”. إنها صانعة سلام عظيمة”.

موسكيرا رياسكوس هو الممثل القانوني لـ الجمعيِة التأسيسية من أجل السلام في كولومبيا ( CONPAZCOL) ، وهي شبكة شعبية تضم 140 منظمة للضحايا في 14 مقاطعة في جميع أنحاء كولومبيا حيث يستمر الصراع العنيف. وبصفتها صانعة سلام ومدافعة عن حقوق الإنسان، عملت موسكيرا رياسكوس لأكثر من 30 عامًا مع النساء والكولومبيين من أصل أفريقي والسكان الأصليين والمجتمعات الزراعية الصغيرة التي كانت ضحية للنزاع الاجتماعي والمسلح في كولومبيا.

قال مانويل مولر، منسق برنامج وجود السلام ، وهي منظمة مستقلة ترافق موسكيرا رياسكوس لتوفير السلامة البدنية والظهور السياسي والتضامن: “كولومبيا هي واحدة من أخطر البلدان في العالم للمدافعين عن حقوق الإنسان والبيئة”. “وعلى الرغم من الصعوبات، فإن ماريا يوجينيا تقف في خط المواجهة تدافع عن حقوق أضعف المجتمعات المحلية”.

وقد قام المجلس المستقل لبناء السلام للمرأة ، الذي يتألف من خبراء ومستشارين بارزين في مجالي الشؤون الجنسانية وبناء السلام، بتوجيه عملية اختيار  ستة مرشحين نهائيين  من بين مرشحي هذا العام واختيار الفائز بالجائزة.

وباختيار موسكيرا رياسكوس، استشهد المجلس بمهاراتها وسجلها الحافل في استخدام العديد من أدوات بناء السلام، وفعاليتها في تمثيل المجتمعات المهمشة تقليديًا خلال محادثات السلام في هافانا، وأثر التزامها على مدى 30 عامًا بالنهوض بالسلام في كولومبيا.

سيتم تقديم الجائزة إلى موسكيرا رياسكوس في حفل في أوائل عام 2023 في مقر معهد الولايات المتحدة للسلام بمتنزه ناشونال مول الكائن بالعاصمة واشنطن.

U.S. Institute of Peace Announces María Eugenia Mosquera Riascos as the 2022 Women Building Peace Award Recipient

WASHINGTON, Nov. 30, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The U.S. Institute of Peace (USIP) is honored to announce María Eugenia Mosquera Riascos of Colombia as the recipient of the Institute’s 2022 Women Building Peace Award. “The Women Building Peace Award honors women of extraordinary commitment, leadership and impact who are working to build peace and resolve violent conflict […]

WASHINGTON, Nov. 30, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The U.S. Institute of Peace (USIP) is honored to announce María Eugenia Mosquera Riascos of Colombia as the recipient of the Institute’s 2022 Women Building Peace Award.

“The Women Building Peace Award honors women of extraordinary commitment, leadership and impact who are working to build peace and resolve violent conflict in their communities,” said USIP President and CEO Lise Grande. “This prestigious annual award celebrates women who are building peace in countries impacted by conflict.”

“María Eugenia Mosquera Riascos is a champion for justice, dignity and peace in Colombia,” said Grande. “She is a great peacemaker.”

Mosquera Riascos is the legal representative of Comunidades Construyendo Paz en Colombia (CONPAZCOL), a grassroots network of 140 victims organizations in 14 departments across Colombia where violent conflict continues. As a peacebuilder and human rights defender, Mosquera Riascos has worked for over 30 years with women, Afro-Colombian, indigenous and small-scale farming communities that have been the victims of social and armed conflict in Colombia.

“Colombia is one of the most dangerous countries in the world for human rights and environmental defenders,” said Manuel Müller, program coordinator of FOR Peace Presence, an independent organization that accompanies Mosquera Riascos to provide physical safety, political visibility and solidarity. “Despite the difficulties, María Eugenia is at the frontline defending the rights of the most vulnerable communities.”

The independent Women Building Peace Council, which is made up of distinguished experts and advisers in the fields of gender and peacebuilding, guided the process of selecting six finalists from this year’s nominations and chose the award winner.

In selecting Mosquera Riascos, the council cited her skills and track record in using the many instruments of peacebuilding, her effectiveness in representing traditionally marginalized communities during the peace talks in Havana, and the impact of her 30-year commitment to advancing peace in Colombia.

The award will be presented to Mosquera Riascos at a ceremony in early 2023 at USIP’s headquarters on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.

Conagen develops high-purity non-GMO sulforaphane by bioconversion

Commercial production is underway for 2023.

Bedford, Mass., Nov. 29, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Expanding on its portfolio of innovative nutritional products through biotechnology, Conagen, announced the development of its 99% high-purity sulforaphane. Made by a proprietary bioconversion technology, the company plans to begin the commercialization path in 2023. Conagen’s bioconversion methods enable the production of sustainable products from many naturally occurring compounds regardless of rarity or small quantities occurring in nature.

“As a supplement product, Conagen’s high-purity sulforaphane is appealing to consumers as the levels found in raw vegetables are too low to realize many of its promising health benefits,” said Casey Lippmeier, Ph.D., senior vice president of innovation. “We’re looking forward to expanding the nutritional market by commercializing sulforaphane in 2023.”

Sulforaphane has been associated with supporting health benefits against cancer, diabetes, digestion, and heart disease and promoting cognition. With biotechnology and biomanufacturing advancements, much like Conagen’s bioconversion technology, more nutritional offerings are produced at a high-quality and global scale.

Sulforaphane is found in cruciferous vegetables such as arugula, bok choy, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, kale, radish, and more. In these vegetables, the inactive form of glucoraphanin belongs to the glucosinolate family of plant compounds. The sulfur-rich sulforaphane is activated only when vegetables are chewed or chopped to release myrosinase, a class of enzymes that play a role in the defense response of plants.

“Through Conagen’s bioconversion technology, we’re uncovering the great potential in sulforaphane as a powerful active health ingredient for consumers who are personalizing nutrition to support health functions,” said Lippmeier. “We can make safe and high-quality nutritional ingredients from natural sources and offer it at a global-scale cost-competitively so that brands may pass on the good health and savings to their consumers.”

Conagen’s sulforaphane is ideal for non-GMO supplement solutions to formulate products with a sustainable and natural consumer appeal. More research is emerging for understanding the optimistic effects on multiple health functions. As one example of many, biotechnology and biomanufacturing will continue to harness the power of biology and nature to develop and deliver solutions for better nutrition, health, and wellness. Conagen is expanding its sustainable, nutritional products portfolio to better humankind and the planet.

About Conagen
Conagen is making the impossible possible. Our scientists and engineers use modern synthetic biology tools to program micro-organisms and enzymes on a molecular level to produce high-quality, sustainable, natural products manufactured worldwide via precision fermentation and bioconversion. We focus on the bioproduction of high-value ingredients for food, nutrition, flavors and fragrances, pharmaceuticals, and renewable materials.
