Julian went to Lebanon as part of his studies International Development Management. During his internship he took all the opportunities he could to learn and blend in:
‘I did my internship at the Lebanese Red Cross in the capital of Lebanon, Beirut. As part of the Disaster Risk Reduction Unit, I worked on an improved approaching strategy to increase resilience in the most vulnerable communities and (Syrian) camps throughout Lebanon. It was an amazing experience and it helped developing me on a professional level. Also the climate strikes and the Lebanese revolution made my stay really interesting.
I took many opportunities to learn more during my stay in Lebanon. I attended various lectures and conferences at universities and institutions about politics in the Middle-East, climate change, and human rights. Besides this, I took Arabic language lessons. I stayed in an apartment with local people and made a lot of friends from all over the world.‘
