Sustainability at Meredith College
Join National Wildlife Federation's Campus Ecology program in Costa Rica!
Full of adventure, beauty, captivating culture and rich biodiversity, Costa Rica is a prime location to deepen your connection to peers in the conservation field while studying global warming, sustainable travel and leadership. We search for all kinds of wildlife and learn about the successful sustainable development strategies that have made Costa Rica famous for conservation and ecotourism. We also interact with rural community members and give back through service projects. Traveling by foot, boat, canopy walkway and zip-line, we truly experience this wonderful country up close and personal. Along the way, we discuss carbon footprints, eco-friendly tourism and Costa Rica's Certification for Sustainable Tourism program. Participants build leadership skills, share success stories and return to their communities with new skills and perspectives that will improve the effectiveness of campus initiatives.
