Here are some of their comments and reflections:
"The part of the day which I was particularly fond of would be when we participated in the games regarding the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, which I have already been familiar with, due to the fact that allowed me to approach them from a different angle as well as truly comprehend them and understand what plausible measures could be taken in order to accomplish them." "My favourite part of the day was the natural disasters, as those required the most practical problem solving and teamwork." and a reflection of what was learnt "On the group 4 day my group and I used economic developments in the village to increase the sustainability of the village and alleviate some of the struggles of an impoverished village by buying game changers with the money made from the increasing economy. An example of this was the game changer that provided the village with fresh drinking water, something which is necessary for a village to escape poverty. I learned, on a small, simplified scale, how poor societies and societies develop into sustainable and economically stable ones."
