„The summer school was a good opportunity for me to learn and discover new expects for the ‘sustainable development’. What I liked was the interdisciplinary approach of the lectures. I also liked the fact that the organizers considered not only ‘indoor’ lectures but also used the ‘infield’ resources. Thank you for the good time in Graz.” (Ioana Hermenean)

“The Summer School provides me an excellent mix of learning experiences, ranking from class lecture to site visits, which were a really opportunity to touch real projects. The title of the Summer School confirmed my expectations.” (Massimo Merighi)

“During this Summer School I’ve got the chance to built up an up-to-date picture upon the European RES policy and upon the regional SD vectors and operational strategies. I appreciate the interactive and interdisciplinary approach during lecture-class. During this Summer School I think I’ve gained a SEED for SD and I am sure that it will blossom into my projects in the future.” (Maria Monica Vatasescu)

“I liked the well selected, diverse expertise and resourceful lecturers who covered the Summer School theme in detail. I also that the focus on ‘Regional Sustainable Energy System’ was unique and a reproducible pathway – I can see this approach working in any region with appropriate leadership.” (Philip Owende)
