This is a winter break travel/study course. This course will explore the forces and processes of social change in Costa Rican communities given the rise of nature-based travel to this Central American destination. We will consider the processes of how communities involved in service sector enterprises relate to the general concepts of sustainability, including environmental, social and economic impacts. From a conceptual and operational point of view, we will explore the concept of sustainability/sustainable development (development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs), with an emphasis on community-based sustainable development. Program fee: $1674. Cross listed with PRT 188 and NR 185.
