Service Learning Weeks (and 1-Week Intensives)
Experience urban ecological sustainability in action with BOD’s one-week intensive “Sustainable City Systems” course. Included are daily field trips, guest speakers, hands-on construction, and permaculture design projects. Students get to explore themes around ecological design, whole-systems thinking (a method to understand how things are related, and how they influence one another within a whole), bioremediation to remove environmental pollutants; and alternative energy. The program culminates with a celebration and a showcase of the students’ finished design projects.
