Mountain Sustainability Field School – Andorra

Mountain Sustainability Field School (Andorra) – May 25 – June 12, 2024

All College students are invited to take part in a hands-on learning experience in the mountains of one of the most unique countries on Earth – the microstate of Andorra, which lies high in the Pyrenees between France and Spain. Take advantage of this opportunity for general interest or to receive College credit (ENST 200, TOUR 237 or ATBO 207). The field school features a 5-day alpine trek (with comfortable accommodation each night) and a separate day-hike to summit Andorra’s highest mountain. As well, you will engage governmental, non-governmental and industry stakeholders on topics such as the natural environment as a driver for tourism, tourism’s impact on the environment, carrying capacity, land-use, and climate change. The field school is both a unique learning opportunity and, for some, a chance to serve as a jumping off point for an entire summer of travel in Europe.
