“Norway is one of the top destinations in the world to study environmental and natural resource management. Phrases describing my happiness after completing a superb one-semester exchange program with CitRe-Edu at NTNU. Experienced how this country became learning material for the student, about how they treat nature in the first place, commodifying the resources with an eco-friendly approach, and identifying the problem and solution to combating climate change are insightful takeaways that aid in my comprehension of the political aspects of these problems. Also, when I finished the course on Discourses of Globalization and Sustainable Development, I realized that “We are all developing countries on this planet” is my favorite way to talk about environmental and climate change issues.

Aside from that, I lived a long way from home and in a place where the temperature was 180 degrees different from Indonesia. This experience was a turning point in my life, as I learned how to make my daily meals, interacted with individuals from other countries and cultures, and represented Indonesia in the international community. What makes this program more than simply an exchange program for me is the experience that you will receive after enduring a difficult selection procedure and being named a CitRes-Edu Exchange Program awardee.”
