June 4-29, 2018
This program will focus on the entire arc of starting with an inspired idea on environmental solution seeking and walking through significant steps of developing an idea into impact. Theory and praxis will inform our process of developing and implementing ideas on the ground to bring about sustainable social change. We will look at case-studies of different local and global environmental leadership and organizing initiatives to familiarize ourselves with the growth of these projects, groups, individuals, or organizations from an inspired idea. We will work directly on individual student ideas to develop everyone's individual environmental sustainability project vision from idea to impact. Also, students will be applying theoretical knowledge by developing community partnerships as they work as interns in environmental/sustainability-themed organizations throughout the length of the program.
