Thursday – 2ndAugust
Today we came back to the Campus Poppelsdorf for two more module lectures and a guest lecturer. International Development, Financing Development Policy and a look into the NGO, CARE: Deutschland/Luxembourg.
Would you like to see my notes (8 pages!) from the first lecture? We talked about the importance and challenges of International Development Corporations within states and organizations. How development has changed in goals, reactions, funding and stakeholders.
We also talked about the 2030 Agenda and the 17 sustainable Development Goals:

After the classes ended for the day a group of us went for a little picnic. With beer in one hand from a local store, and a plate of currywurst with Belgium fries in the other, we were ready!
Even though we had a second wasp sting of the day (Sorry, Esther!), and the wasps were particularly aggressive, we sat in a circle, ate our food, drank our beer and talked, laughed and enjoyed the sunset. There is something special about having a really long and intensive day, and then being able to sit and relax with a group of fun, friendly and fantastic friends.
