While exploring the beautiful countries of Slovenia and Croatia in eastern Europe, students will participate in hands-on community- based learning focusing on the intersection of sustainable development, green innovations, and social inclusion. Visits include coastal, alpine, and hinterland communities and students will undertake coursework and service-learning activities relating to sustainable development for improving the quality of life of Slovenia’s underrepresented/marginalized rural populations and underserved ethno-cultural regions. Students will gain exposure to multidisciplinary approaches to social sustainability innovations, including business, ecology, economics, education, gender studies, health, politics, sociology, tourism and hospitality, and more.
