ENVR 180 - Sustainable Development: Service Learning in Tropical America


3 Credit(s)

This course introduces students to the concept of sustainable resource development by allowing them to work closely with community members in tropical America that traditionally harness biological resources as a source of income. Students explore how people form a different culture using biological resources to create an income stream that is both continuous and sustainable. Students provide service to the community by helping members develop and refine biological resources for the purpose of augmenting their income. Additionally, students help to direct efforts toward developing sound conservation initiatives. Specific goals focus on maintaining the integrity of the environment along with restoring and repairing areas traditionally degraded by poor land use practices. This experience will help build community spirit and cultural bridges between people from diverse backgrounds. Evening sessions prior to and after the field experience are a part of this course.
3 hours lecture.
