Participants learn how a rational approach to environmental issues helps develop a better understanding of the complexity of these matters and how they may possibly be solved. 

All sessions are highly interactive and led by outstanding, nationally recognized professors. The program pedagogy combines content lectures, hands-on classroom activities, and case studies. A highlight of the program is a field trip that illuminates the challenges and solutions to specific environmental issues.
