Durign the course I did not learn anything new. There should be at least some new knowledge about the topic of "Climate" and some new projects and ideas developed that we can work on with our students, but there were none. Everyday we finished ahead of our timetable so the actual realisation was not as we paid for. The organization however took money for a 7-day training. However the participants of our course recognized this and connected in a working network and started building partnerships.
