"The project work showed me how powerful it is to communicate my ideas to a bigger group of experts and retrieve their feedback. The transformative canvas helped presenting the idea in simple terms, and considering different areas of importance when designing my project."
"I was relatively new to the topic of Planetary Health when I applied for the Summer School Planetary Health but I have gained so much knowledge in such a short period of time that I am much more confident talking about enviromental matters and climate challenges. No one is an expert on Planetary Health, we are all learning along the way but that does not mean that climate change is an insuperable issue. My attitude has changed a lot since the beginning of the Summer School mainly because I feel so inspired and welcomed by a community of great people with great visions. Change seems to be right at my doorstep and I can be part of it!" -Medical student from Würzburg
"I gained so much knowledge and information in such a short period of time that I feel much more confident talking about enviromental matters and planetary health issues. Learning about each of the participants individual experiences made the matter much more accessible and personal so that I now feel relevant to the change and also capable of changing something."
„Now that the different levels on which one can act have been made clear I can see that not only is it pretty easy to take action but there are also many people willing to help and support one along the way."
"I benefited greatly from the varied content of the Planetary Health Summer School in Würzburg, which deepened and broadened my knowledge. In addition, I was able to meet so many other people who are also interested in the same topic. The atmosphere was very pleasant and we had a lot of fun! I have found very concrete ways in which I can be more active." -Participant from Germany, 26 years
