SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITIES

Texas A & M University
Summer Program

May - June

 

 

ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Sustainability is not just a one-time expense for construction, but represents a change of lifestyle and an on-going commitment to living more lightly on the earth. This program will focus on existing sustainable places in communities, including town centers, office buildings, housing developments, parks, and reclaimed industrial sites. City and regional recycling programs, transit systems and how communities create sustainable infrastructure are explored. We ask questions from people who are making sustainability actually happen for energy production, resource conservation and mobility.

Fragen? LOCATION

Bonn This program is based at the Academy of International Education (AIB) in Bonn in the heart of Germany’s Rhein River Valley. Set between the mountain ranges of the Siebengebirge and the Eifel, Bonn enjoys a rich heritage from its 2,000-year history. Baroque royal seat of the former prince elector, site of a major university and the birthplace of Beethoven— Bonn is naturally committed to the arts. Visitors are often pleasantly surprised by the contrasts between magnificent historical buildings, small village charm, cosmopolitan life, and high-quality cultural attractions.

Names such as Cologne, Aachen and Mainz are synonymous with soaring Gothic architecture around the city. The Rhineland is full of riverside towns, vast plains, crater lakes, vineyards, orchards, and castles.

Fragen? CULTURAL EXCURSIONS & ACTIVITIES

Classes will be conducted four days a week with three-day weekends for personal travel. Suggested weekend travel destinations will be provided or students can launch out on their own. Students are further immersed into German culture by living with an English-speaking host family while in Bonn.

In addition to the activities that focus on course content, cultural visits, guest speakers and excursions will be numerous. Major cities that will be visited in addition to Bonn will include but not be limited to Berlin or Cologne. Additionally scheduled activities include a boat cruise on the Rhine River with all its scenic castles, a rooftop tour of Cologne Cathedral, and visits to assorted historical, cultural and arts museums.
