„The SDA is also the people we have met, all around the world (here Rebecca from USA, me from Argentina, and Cris form Brasil), the laughs we have shared, all based on our sustainability conviction.“

The Sustainable Development Academy for me was a life changing experience due to the fact that it was a space with collaborative, interdisciplinary and multicultural work and sharing, with the big goal (or way) of sustainability.

Being part of the virtual SDA 2021 and the live SDA 2022, has given me the point of view that in both conditions we can connect with other multicultural people, learn from the lectures, understand the differences and share the similarities. But, in different ways and shapes of sharing knowledge and experiences as human beings.

Specifically, being part of the SDA 2022 has let me know the wonderful and unique University of Potsdam, and the people behind that make this friendly environment and things happen. I thank to the ISCO team for this new opportunity.

During the summer school I could not only learn deeper about Sustainable Development Goals, I also developed analyzing skills to examine goals in different perspectives.

The Sustainable Development Academy was the last impulse that I needed to start carrying out projects in favor of Sustainable Development Goals because it gave me the tools to start the rush.

I'm really grateful to have been a participant in this summer school, it was an amazing experience! I came without knowledge about sustainability but finished the summer class with huge amount of good knowledge in novel food, sustainable development, designing posters and technical skills like the plattform conceptboard.

I really enjoyed the lecture and workshop sessions. Looking forward to the next year!
