"For me, being an NRT Climate Resilience Trainee gives me the opportunity to learn and practice what climate science is all about. This program will allow me to meet like-minded people, in the field of climate change, invested in making the Earth a better and more sustainable place in the future. It will be a challenging, yet exciting opportunity to be a part of!"
