The 3MUGIS summer school is a very dynamic platform that integrates science, culture, and urban sustainability. The lectures are a wealth of information provided by guest speakers that are professionals in various scientific fields. The field excursions across the five bioclimatic zones provided a diverse ecological setting with contrasting environmental conditions. I was impressed with a magnificent natural geological museum which Kursk Magnetic Anomaly is.

I want to say, these were my best experienced 21 day. I learned so many things about soil from our professors of Russia, USA, Germany and France. I’m also so glad to have the chance to see so many beautiful places and cultures and the most important thing for me, to meet so many kind people and making new friends. I want to thank you all once again, also the 3MUGIS team that organised all of this. Thank you for this amazing time.
