"I look forward to living in the moment (each and every one) in order to soak it all in and return home a more thoughtful, solution-oriented leader for the vast amounts of work we have got to do in order to restore and preserve our (only) planet."

What connection does our Centre, situated at 740m above sea level, an hour inland and surrounded by rainforest, have with the coast and the Great Barrier Reef?

Fitzroy Island, a 45 minute ferry ride from Cairns, provides a fabulous introduction to the dizzying diversity of coral reef life.

"We expect that our program will give students the necessary exposure to #global issues and create a dent in the way that we all use resources, think about solutions, and influence political decisions that have global consequences."

The development of new ideas to change old systems can only be achieved by getting immersed in the actual complexity of our world.

"I cannot believe that in a few months I will be able to say that I worked on a #research project on #sustainabledevelopment in Costa Rica!"

I chose this program because it was a perfect marriage of my interests: environmental science, international studies, and Spanish.
