They will meet with indigenous people, NGOs, and governmental officers involved in local environmental issues. This course emphasizes critical thinking and interdisciplinary learning. Topics such as wildlife conservation policies and community-based conservation projects are studied by integrating the ecological, social, political and economic aspects of that system. Ultimately, the participation in this program will challenge students’ world-view and will enable them to increase their awareness and knowledge to become more effective leaders of our global society.
