Our Approach

Every Sustainable Summer program starts with an essential question: How do we meet the needs of today's people without compromising the ability of future people to meet their own needs?

Our four guiding principles form the foundation of our approach:

Sustainability Immersion

Deep engagement in the subject and practice of sustainability

Leadership Development

Communication, critical reflection, action planning, and more

Active Learning

Hands-on, collaborative, and participatory applications of concepts

Environmental Study

An interdisciplinary study of human interaction with the environment

Our Value

We’re committed to a “students first” approach that delivers unparalleled value in the pre-college and study abroad fields.
