(That’s “Hello” in Northern Germany.)
As I’m sure you’re aware, Dickinson consistenly receives national recognition for our green efforts on campus and in academic programs. What better way to compliment these efforts than a study abroad opportunity in Germany! Seriously, check it out – Germany is a world leader in renewable energy technology and is currently experiencing unprecedented support for Green politics.
I have a new feature on my personal Dickinson blog that tracks my sustainable experiences while on the Dickinson in Bremen program. As a Dickinson student in Bremen, I’ve visited the Federal Ministry for the Environment in Berlin, completed an internship for the Fairtrade and sustainably-oriented Bremen Information Center for Human Rights and Development, and lived by the everyday waste-reducing/recycling standards of the typical German citizen. These experiences have allowed to reflect on my lifestyle back in the U.S. and gain a better understanding not simply of alternative lifestyles, but how we relate to eachother in a complex global society – and that’s what studying abroad is all about!
