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 through the Volta Region of Ghana by bus, visiting urban and rural areas, ecotourism projects and interacting with community leaders to explore how living conditions in developing countries affect people’s well-being. 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.
