Fiji Sustainability

Fiji – Sustainability

This 12-day experiential program uses the theme of sustainable development to explore the relationship between people and the natural environment. We examine the complex relationships between Fijian cultural practices, environmental conservation, and eco-tourism. Despite several centuries of outside contact and a unique ethnic mix, traditional Fijian values and customs still flourish and have a profound influence on the connection between people and the land. Fiji is a low-cost layover on the return flight to the U.S. and by combining Fiji with Australia, you earn 9 credits.

Dates: June 9 (or 11) – 20, 2017 (in-country dates) Credits: 3 credits (LEI 4955/6931) Program fee: TBD
