Program Description:

SIT Study Abroad Portugal: Sustainability and Environmental Justice

 

Learn how Portugal’s approach to sustainability and social equity challenges the core principles of mainstream economic theory.

 

WHY STUDY SUSTAINABILITY IN PORTUGAL?
Live in the European Green Capital for 2020: Lisbon, a city addressing carbon emissions and the impact of mass tourism through renewable energy technologies and social projects. Here, you’ll discover how Portugal’s approach to sustainability and social equity challenges the core principles of economic orthodoxy. You will gain firsthand experience learning about food waste and environmental education by volunteering with NGO´s such as RefoodMovimento ALP, and Banco de Bens Doados. On excursions to the Azores Islands, the coastal city Porto, and Spain’s stunning Extremadura region, you’ll compare conservation projects, sustainable agriculture production, resource management, and environmental good practice.

Please visit the SIT Study Abroad website for details on the program highlights and details of coursework, educational excursions, and housing.
