Dutch Sustainability: Is Orange the New Green?
- Location: Netherlands
- Dates: May 2-May 20, 2022
- Cost: 4,000 (estimate)
When faced with sustainability challenges, the Dutch have always innovated their way towards a more stable and resilient environment.
Through daily field excursions, students learn about this country’s richly varied history of land reclamation, water management, infrastructure design, energy production, food production, and environmental preservation. These innovations are each an important part of understanding the complex interrelationships between Dutch society, technology, and environment. Excursions throughout the Netherlands are guided by short online lectures, visits to historic and culturally significant sites, conversations with local experts, and class discussions. Course assessment is based on reflective assignments and online quizzes. Students can expect to learn some Dutch on this trip, but Dutch fluency is not required since most people in the Netherlands are also fluent in English. Prerequisite: Community and Commitments or Developing a Christian Mind core course.
