'After a meandering journey, I realised that environment was where I wanted, needed, to put my energy'

My name’s Gina Lovett and I am from Dublin. After a meandering journey, I realised that environment was where I wanted, needed, to put my energy. During this time, my desire to learn more about environmental issues became harder to dismiss, and after 17 years in London, I moved to Amsterdam to start Environmental Geography at UvA.' Read what Gina has to say about Environmental Geography.

'One tip I have for new Environmental Geographers is: be prepared to get overwhelmed by all the new information you get from this course (and that’s a good thing!).'

The job prospects after my master programme are mainly in governmental fields, such as the Dutch Water Board, but I’m also looking at traineeships with for example the Social and Economic Committee of the European Union, or interesting environmental development programmes elsewhere in the world.
