Mundus Urbano offered me the opportunity to study with young professionals who came from diverse contexts, most of which are facing very similar challenges to the ones I encountered working in Colombia. The programme created a space for us to be able to reflect on our previous experiences and collectively investigate innovative solutions while offering an unconventional approach to learning. Throughout the programme there is a strong core group of students and visiting lecturers come with their expertise on different topics to contribute to the ongoing discussion. This experience has not only given me a global perspective on urban issues but has also prepared me to work in a multidisciplinary and multicultural environment.
