How can students and scholars in higher education gain ground and confidence to professionally communicate in English in a global perspective? In a symposium on sustainability and inter university collaboration, the underpinning of this growth by various stakeholders, with both successes and pitfalls, is illustrated by means of practical cases in order to feed an ensuing round table discussion on the leading questions: how can networking guarantee sustainability of cooperation projects? What role do online environments and platforms play in setting up sustainable networks and in supporting joint projects during and beyond their life span? The presentations covered Capacity Building in International Cooperation (Lut Baten), Faculty Identity and FL Planning (Liliana del Pilar Gallego) Assessment Literacy and Certification  (Ivonne PeñaCollada and Claudia Harsch) Developing Intercultural Communicative Competence (Ana Vivian Fernández Peraza) , Virtual Exchange & social entrepreneurship) (Sake Jager). The symposium paved the way to launching LatinCALL, an association for sustainment and promotion of networking forCALL in Latin and Central America.
