Participant Perspective: Alina Melnikava

“My UWC BASF experience went far beyond the exploration of the concepts of sustainability and climate change. It made me question my own identity, taught how to think critically about the future, and allowed to engage into the fruitful discussions about social justice, equality between people and diversity we have in the world we live in. 


Therefore, the short course also made me realize how essential it is to embrace who I truly am and be the help to others. Eventually, I got involved into solving one of the global challenges we face now: the issue of plastic. The international team I currently work with has proved to me that UWC is a life-long journey. Thus, I got inspired to find my own creative solutions and collaborate with other people to create our own projects and contribute to building a sustainable future!”
