I wanted an opportunity to study in depth how urban and regional planning can be used in the long term to work towards positive societal development.
What does the international nature of the programme mean to you?
I’m reasonably flexible, but I would like to get into something that involves physical planning, such as overview planning, detailed development planning, architectural planning or something similar.
It was really exciting to focus on a European and international perspective. It’s been an interesting mix with many topical societal challenges, such as climate adaptation in cities.
I see the internship as a great opportunity for me to gain useful experience of being in the workplace. I’m going to be working at Region Östergötland and will focus on my favourite area – sustainable transport.
Many of the people I talk to find the programme extremely exciting and think that it covers an area that will be very important in the future.
