- This May Term Travel Course to England, Scotland, and Wales, provides a transatlantic perspective on environmental sustainability. In it, we explore our attitudes and impacts on the environment, where they come from, and what to do to live sustainably. We begin in London, visiting the grand gardens and palaces of the British monarchy, head north to a Yorkshire coal mine, and proceed to the Scottish highlands for a week at Aigas Field Study Centre; here past and present merge, as we explore contemporary environmental policy and restoration work through field study. We go next to the Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT) in Wales, where we measure our personal ecological footprint and learn about alternative technologies and social endeavors towards sustainability. The class wraps up in London, exploring the city's environmental policies, green architecture,and NGO activism, and considering what effects Britain's exit from the EU may have on sustainability.
