"I cannot go back to normal, mentally I am still on ECOWEEK! It was so amazing!

"I found about ECOWEEK through Google search. What attracted me to ECOWEEK was that it offered an alternative from other conferences.

"I encourage you to do the work you are doing to change people's minds (you changed mine!). I am so grateful to have attended ECOWEEK!

"ECOWEEK was unforgettable! I wish it would never end!

ECOWEEK conferences and workshops offer opportunities for team-work, network, 'green' design, and real projects.

"My experiece at the workshop was very good! I learned about working with other people!

"ECOWEEK brings together people who want to go beyond restrictions!

"The experience at ECOWEEK was very interesting and I learned a lot from the lectures during all the week and also from the others students. I 'love' this kind of interaction between international people who have the same vision, but different ways of achieving it.

One of the best programs for students!
