And from local to global: after the insightful experience in Mafra, on Thursday we examined the importance of leading with purpose for a sustainable, inclusive world. Participants heard first-hand experiences from women and men in the frontline, and how they overcame extremely difficult situations. Their persistence inspired us to push forward, no matter how hard life may get.
Discussions on new media and nanotechnologies occupied the afternoon, while the last part of the session was dedicated to the group project. More on that later - but students were asked to start thinking about the concept of “Leave no one behind” that would help with part of the work already done.
Following such an eventful day, the best way to end it was by taking part in some meditation and mindfulness workshops at a picturesque garden. Participants changed into their most comfortable clothes and came prepared to relax and let go.
