The international and multidisciplinary environment of S.Co.Re. learnt me to keep an open mind and look for solutions across fields and countries. This programme is a good stepping-stone to become part of a small community of restoration-conservation scientists because it gives opportunity to be trained by experts passionated by their subject.
