Sustainable Summer Featured in Saint Johns College Blog
Sustainable Summer co-founder, Anne Fenton, was recently featured in Saint John’s College blog in an article highlighting Sustainable Summer‘s focus on educating for sustainability through travel.
Summer travel programs for teens have increased in popularity over the years, as high school students seek to broaden their horizons through exposure to different places and cultures. The mainstay of international travel has always been arts-and-culture tours of Europe, or, for some, learning to live communally in Israeli kibbutzim. In the 1990s, service-learning travel proliferated—in which students go to developing nations to volunteer their time and energy, especially after natural disasters.
