Experience of a lifetime

My experience from this programme is very positive. The work we did and the people I met truly gave me the experience of a lifetime. I use my learnings from the projects in my everyday work- and personal life to this very day.

This programme is, as with all the best sustainable projects/educations/operations, improving all the time by keeping up to date with what's happening in the world. The contemporary social and environmental analysis is always considered when developing this programme and its projects, making it truly sustainable in itself.

I would recommend anyone who is curious about sustainable development to participate in this programme. Personally I find it wonderful to be able to follow the projects years later and see how they continuously develop and how the work I did still provides a positive result to the bigger picture.

Yes, I recommend this program
