Vermont is at the forefront of sustainability and regeneration. New England is a hotbed of innovation, including transition towns, permaculture (in various forms), community-owned forests (indigenous and beyond), co-housing, cooperatives, local food industries, local artisanal companies, eco-architecture, green energy, and environmental and social justice organizations. SIT’s southern Vermont campus is in a strategic position for you to see this innovation firsthand.
Oaxaca is a thriving hub of ecological and social innovation. You’ll engage with social movements and indigenous communities and learn directly from individuals who are creatively responding to challenges.
Washington, DC (Optional)
Those of you wishing to specialize in monitoring and evaluation and policy and advocacy can get firsthand experience in these tools and processes through an optional field course at SIT’s Washington, DC Field School.
A priority of the program is to allow you to immediately apply what you learn in your workplace, community, and/or organization. This gives you guided, hands-on practice that deepens your learning.
