Sustainable Cities - Learning from Colombia

This Burch Field Research Seminar is a three-week program based in Colombia. Students will visit three cities - Bogota, Medellin, and Cartagena - and explore firsthand sustainability initiatives that could be applied to cities worldwide. The seminar will examine major trends and issues in cities today, implications of these trends, and the different ways that cities are adapting.
