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.
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.
