About Sustainable Summer
Each Sustainable Summer program tackles the broader question of sustainability by examining our three core sustainability themes: agriculture, water or energy. We facilitate first-hand examination of both sustainable and unsustainable practices in these topic areas through experiential and active learning. We root this practical exploration of sustainability within theoretical discussions of the broader economic, political, and ecological contexts. We do this by merging our expertise in teen travel programs and environmental education with the resources and expertise of like-minded organizations, and by choosing program destinations that possess dynamic opportunities for the teaching of sustainability.
Sustainable Summer is the trade name of Sustainable Learning Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit incorporated in the state of New York for the purpose of facilitating experiential and theoretical learning on the subject of environmental sustainability.
