Program Description:
Bentley Students at Mount Gemi, Ghana
Like many developing nations, the country of Ghana faces unique environmental, ecological and institutional challenges in keeping their citizens healthy and their economy thriving. We will travel southern Ghana by bus, visiting urban and rural areas, inland and along the coast, forested and agricultural. Via lectures, field exercises, photo journals and reflective discussions we will study the interactions between development and the environment on health and consider some sustainable solutions available to these communities.
