“The Guest Lecture Series on Sustainable Development Goals is a highly valuable program and I thank ITS International Office for inviting me to contribute. The discussion was of a high standard and the students were equipped to ask insightful and knowledgeable questions. The session on Sustainable Consumption and Production Patterns was excellently run with the topic promoted stimulating and thoughtful debate. It was a pleasure to contribute to this and I would highly recommend similar sessions to anyone interested. I look forward to working further with ITS in the future.”

“It was a pleasure be invited to participate at the Guest Lecture Series on Sustainable Development Goals (GLS SDG´s) organized by ITS´s global engagement department in April of 2021. The event was thoroughly well planned and carried out in a timely manner without any technical difficulties. Most importantly, the participation of the students through the moderating of the guest moderator Novi Andriany was not only very engaging but I believe resulted in a very fruitful conversation. Additionally, the event was seamlessly streamed live to both private and public platforms allowing for a maximum reach of this conversation.”
