Experience the beauty and challenges of the natural elements as you travel throughout China.
Professor at Loyola Marymount University Dept. of Civil Engineering & Environmental Science
In The Beijing Center’s ChinaGreen program you will join China’s discussion about its environment: how to preserve and protect it whilst ensuring sustainable livelihoods for the Chinese people. Over four weeks, you’ll face the big questions about balancing environmental management and economic development, and you will be awed by the ways in which individuals, social enterprises, corporations, and government in China respond to these issues. Both in Beijing and on a 12-day academic excursion, you will participate in behind-the-scenes site visits, lectures from world experts, tours, field research, and experiments, giving you a greater understanding of the science behind environmental policy and practice. While earning course credit for ENVS 281C Environmental sustainability & science in china, you will deeply analyze how economic development and environmental sustainability are interwined, and reflect on your own role in this global challenge.
