OUR FIELD COURSE

Have you always wanted to travel Latin America? Ever thought it was possible with zero carbon footprint, while supporting a good cause?

 

Join us to take part in this innovative Virtual Field School and learn from experts whose work with local communities across Latin America has been funded by the National Geographic Society.

 

This certificate course is an interdisciplinary social science and humanities field school aimed at both the university student and life-learner alike. It is for those interested in sustainable development, nature conservation, and socioecological change.

 

This course offers seminars, virtual field-trips, and one-to-one mentorship by field experts across Latin America. It will give you an inside look at critical development and conservation issues, while supporting local communities and grassroots non-profit organizations.
