Environmental issues represent a major threat we face daily. Therefore, as a very tempting topic I decided to partake in this vital project in order to learn new methods on how to deal with environmental issues, as well as to share my personal experience and knowledge. The project was set in a very challenging environment suitable for its purpose. I believe the learning outcomes were reached and the fellow participants acquired new skills and knowledge to cope with pollution challenges. Finally, the remote location of the Reunion Island with all its picturesque surroundings was an additional motivation for us all.
