Program Description:


Sustainable development has emerged as one of the most important issues of the 21st century. It is a multi-dimensional concept that aims to integrate environmental, social and economic objectives into a discussion about our consumption of energy and the impact of changing usage on all of our futures. Scandinavian countries like Iceland, Denmark and Sweden are known for their ecological consciousness and as leaders in renewable and alternative energy production. Their sustainable energy programs are known to be the best in the world and are therefore the perfect destination for studying the power and impact of sustainable energy.


The faculty for this program is Dr. Melissa Markley of the Driehaus College of Business Marketing Department on the Scandinavia study abroad program.  For more information, please contact the program director, Dr. Melissa Markley (MMARKLEY@depaul.edu).
