Experience the diversity of Germany’s culture and landscape on this two-week multi-city program while focusing your studies on environmental sustainability and developing communication skills in your development as a conscientious and engaged global citizen. Begin your journey in youthful, artistic, and hip Berlin as you explore how this cosmopolitan city and its inhabitants have changed from the cultural avant-garde of the Weimar Republic to the devastation of World War II, and then rebuilding from a divided city symbolizing the Cold War a reunified and renewed capital representing the best of modern environmental design. Humans feel more connected to nature in the urban cities we will explore in Germany due to forests, gardens, and parks. Enjoy learning about amazing medieval and modern architecture, local cuisine, museums, cathedrals, and castles as you travel by train or bus to the Bavarian region to see the charm of Nuremburg. Finish the trip with a few days exploring Munich to compare the differences from Berlin in terms of how environmental sustainability is managed in cities located in opposite ends of the country. Imagine yourself following in the footsteps of Goethe, Beethoven, Martin Luther, and Albert Einstein. You will bring back what you learn about European practices by ordinary citizens and local governments to help protect the planet in your hometown, and may even make lifelong friends in the process.
