Climate change is in the news every day and the movement is being led by young people. The field of education abroad wants to move towards more environmentally sustainable ways of doing our work and our students are demanding it. But how do you even begin to tackle such a big issue?
Presenters offer practical steps you can take to reduce your programming’s footprint and move towards a greener education abroad. Sharing their diverse perspectives from universities and a program provider organization, based in the U.S. and Costa Rica, the panelists introduce you to building carbon offsets into your program budgets, helping students and staff make sustainable choices at home and abroad, and incorporating sustainability into program curricula. Presenters:
- Brynn Smith, Pacific Lutheran University
- Nico Evers, EARTH University
- Devin Foxall, The School for Field Studies
