Summer Abroad Program Feature
Renewable Energy Policy & Development
The Northwestern Study Abroad Office offers this exciting summer program in conjunction with the Initiative for Sustainability & Energy at Northwestern (ISEN), the College of Global Studies at Arcadia University, & the University of Bonnn, in Bonn, Germany!
Germany is an innovative leader in renewable energy systems and geopolitics. This 5-week, 2-credit summer program focuses on German energy policy and initiatives in renewable, sustainable, sources of energy—wind, solar, biomass, geothermal—and energy conservation in a European and global context. Students will gain a broad perspective on cutting-edge energy policies and global actors (i.e. major research institutes, UN agencies, German ministries, NGOs, international organizations and private corporations) through lectures, discussions, a collaborative energy project with other program participants, and excursions. Field trips include a visit to the European Commission headquarters in Brussels and a short study trip to Berlin where students will visit important historic sites and interact with representatives from key governmental and private agencies.
