We are pleased to provide you with the sixth in a series of blog posts from our 2017 Global Student Ambassadors. This week, we highlight the Language for Business and Technology (LBAT): Spain program which provides students with the opportunity to spend six weeks in Madrid and Grenada, studying current issues in politics, socio-economics, and sustainability in Spain and the European Union. Our Global Student Ambassadors in this program, Abhita Moorthy and Caroline Kajzer, wrote a series of blog posts about their experiences exploring sustainability initiatives in Spain, as related to the 17 U.N. Sustainable Development Goals. Read their complete set of blog posts here.
