16.06.2020 - Ana Terry joined the Learning and Teaching Development team at Otago Polytechnic in August 2018. In conversation, she has often mentioned her voluntary work overseas with VSA (Volunteer Service Abroad), but has not had the opportunity to talk about it in depth. She recently remedied this, in discussion with one of her colleagues, Claire Goode. While reflecting on her experiences in Vanuatu, Ana also addressed the challenges of embedding sustainable practices in work and education across this island nation, and of working towards the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, which underpin all VSA assignments.
