Marta Vetier (Hungary), Cohort I (2005-2007)

Since my childhood I have always turned with great respect towards the environment and nature surrounding us. I went hiking with my parents almost every weekend and as a teenager I was an active member of several nature-clubs. These influenced my decision to start my university studies as a landscape architect; I got my masters degree at the Corvinus University of Budapest (Hungary) in 2004.

During my internships, scholarships and professional practice I got acquainted with larger scale environmental projects. The experiences I gained from these years helped to form my approach to everyday matters and planning challenges. I got to know the benefits of inter- and multidisciplinary teams, the way of regional and trans-boundary thinking, the methods of ecological planning. My career goal is to work at a European-scale for landscape conservation, planning and management: to synthesize environmental and social needs in strategic plans.
    
MESPOM offers me a wide-ranging, inspiring program with outstanding professors and colleagues from all over the world to deepen my knowledge and to open new visions of environmental thinking. Besides academics it is a wonderful experience to be together with people from so many places; to learn to think in a global scale, to learn our interdependence and to talk, play, celebrate and discover the world together.
