Before joining the Mundus programme, “globalisation” was just a word you might have seen in the books or heard in the news. However, as we all finally met and started to explore this borderless Mundus world together, the word started to be the reality. Whether in the classroom, library, canteen or somewhere in the city, we have always been surrounded by this all embracing feeling of being a part of something bigger, of being connected to each other and feeling grateful for it. Step by step, we moved forward in this new world facing all the challenges together as if we were the single whole. At the same time, each of us kept his or her own identity and cultural legacy paying respect to who we are and where we come from. And this is how actually globalisation works -- it brings and keeps us together although we all are different. It is a blending, a fusion, which has both “here” and “there”, “us” and “them”, local and global.

Mundus Journalism is an absolutely cool way of preparing yourself for in-depth coverage of trends in world politics. Together with people of your own age from virtually each and every corner of the world you learn to analyze pretty complicated stuff without getting lost. Great fun, too.
