This program explores specific issues in environmental sustainability from a European perspective. Students will be exposed to scientists working collaboratively across agriculture, natural resource management, food production, manufacturing and alternative fuel resources. The course includes lectures from leading European scientists, tours of relevant industries and marketplaces, and interactions with European students.

This program will primarily take place in Ghent, Belgium, a lively city in the center of Western Europe. This program provides a significant on-site learning experience that is not available on the University of Arkansas campus.
