Views on environmental problems have been increasingly polarized lately, a trend that is worrying to our planet and its inhabitants. From my perspective, it is our generation’s responsibility to bridge the gap and help establish a common goal of sustainability. Communication – a valuable player in such matter – is also the essence of what the EVMT programme has always been committed to provide. Despite having only been in the EVMT family for one year, I have grown to appreciate the multidimensional perspectives and understanding awarded by the interdisciplinary EVMT curriculum. And I believe these attributes will prove essential and impactful in my career ahead.
