Today was our last day in Ostrava, and first in Budapest.
In the morning at our hotel, we presented papers that we wrote before the trip comparing European and American sustainability policies at different levels of government. Our papers looked at the environmental, social, and economic tenets of sustainability, with topics ranging from GMOs to green space to immigration. It was interesting being able to not only hear about people’s research but to engage in conversation after each presentation.
We then departed from Ostrava and traveled by train to Budapest. Europe has an incredible inter-country transit system that makes it very easy to get from place to place, especially among the big cities.
Because most of the day took place on the long train ride to Budapest, I decided to create a vlog to document the experience of a train ride and talk to some of my peers. I love making videos and I thought it would be a unique way to share my thoughts on the day. Enjoy!
