"Forests and people’s hearts are Earth’s most precious treasure. MEDFOR helped me build and deepen the connection between these two things in so many different (and pleasantly surprising!) ways that I could only wish future students will feel inspired to pursue this road. Nearly three years after graduation and happily working as a forest governance and economics specialist in the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, I can honestly say that the whole MEDFOR experience played a key role in allowing me to follow my vocation and grow as a human being!"
"I was recruited by University of Adigrat, northern Ethiopia. I am acting in the university as lecturer and research. I teach different courses for undergraduate students, for instance, plant physiology, biometrics and agro-forestry and others. Besides, I am also doing research in agriculture and forestry thereby helping my country's development. The skills, knowledge and experiences that I gained from my MEDFOR study is greatly helping me to doing my job in teaching and research effectively. "
"MEDFOR is an exciting combination of great new friends, trips to beautiful forests, interesting lectures by international professionals in the forestry field, and amazing new countries and diverse cultures. It also opened my eyes to the many different topics that the forestry field covers."
"I graduated in Mediterranean Forestry and Natural Resources Management (MEDfOR). This prestigious international program helped me to shape my career path to become a highly qualified forestry professional. I had the opportunities to earn a depth and up to date knowledge in the field of forest ecosystem management under global change. This also facilitated to interact with the talented good soul from all over the globe through winter and summer school session. In view of such experiences, I would say MEDfOR is a tool to make the earth greener for combat the climate change. On the social part, I had great opportunities to enjoy beautiful Mediterranean landscape and climate, to meet foreign people, their food, language, and culture. This extraordinary two-year program is giving me courage, inspiration and guidance to walk for future. "
"Time flies, I feel I was admitted the MEDfOR Programme just a short time before. The two-year’s living and studying abroad is a precious memory in my life.
MEDfOR: Meet in Mediterranean region, Enjoy the university life, Do what we can for Organizing forest and natural resources, Recover our mother planet. "
