What can students expect in the project: Think Tank?
'My think tank is working for the government of the Limburg Province. We were asked to figure how can citizen participation, support and/or acceptance for solar and wind energy projects in Limburg be fostered. It’s really exciting because the province and municipalities are kicking off this sustainable energy transition and want to make sure that residents are involved.
Of course, I will learn new theories and discover new case studies but I think the real lessons of this project are softer skills. Communication is a key skill learned by spending every day working with a group and by working for someone. Additionally, group work is a great way to learn how to collaborate and incorporate everyone’s perspective. It’s an intense project but our topic is super cool, we decked out our room with lights and other fun things and always have snacks!'
