Why did you decide to participate in the summer university?
Multiple reasons: I was interested in visiting Sweden and getting to know more about another culture. I also wanted to do something special during the summer in an English-speaking environment. So, it was the perfect opportunity to combine visiting a new country and studying abroad for two weeks.

What did you like the best about the summer university?
I enjoyed the excursion to the National Park, and the dinners in the first week were delicious.

What was it like working with the project?
For me, as a not Environmental Science Student, there were a lot of new interesting facts and information. I learned about the DPSIR-Framework and how to apply it for an environmental problem like our project.

What have you learned during the summer university?
I learned a lot about climate change and their drivers & pressures and how complicated the whole topic is. I also learned a lot about environmental problems with we face now and probably in the future. The short presentations during most of the days in the morning were compelling and extended my horizon.

Would you participate again if you had the opportunity?
Sure. The organization during the two weeks was excellent, and I gained a lot of new experiences.
