United nations and global challenges applications are now closed

So many different perspectives brought into one Summer programme! It allowed us to tackle an issue from a perspective we had never thought of and this will definitely deepen our analysis of an issue even after we go back to our own specific fields.
Tous les enseignements reposaient sur la conviction passionnée que malgré sa complexité, il faut continuer à “penser notre monde” en adoptant une vision critique et non cynique.
