Program Overview

Program Description:
ISDSI's programs are designed to get students out of the traditional classroom and learning hands-on about sustainability and the relationship between different people groups and the environment they live in. ISDSI's programs are academically challenging, immerse students in a variety of vibrant local cultures, and allow for students to spend the majority of their time in the expedition field. Field courses are developed in collaboration with local community leaders, and with courses combining both social and natural science concepts.

Have the best summer of your life, when you get out of the traditional classroom and challenge yourself intellectually, emotionally and often physically in the expedition field. You will learn hands-on about the link between people, culture and the environment they live in while immersing yourself in a culture that is different than your own. You will live with host-families and learn from local community experts, backpack on remote forest trails with ethnic Karen people while studying indigenous forest management, and work on organic farms while learning about agroecosystem.
