Program Description:
Sweden: Sustainable Use of NR
Program participants will study forests, fisheries/wildlife, and infrastructure sustainability questions in the historic and current landscapes of Sweden. Students will engage with scientists and practitioners managing resources and investigating questions affecting the viability of ecosystems and their services. By virtue of having Swedish students in our teams, we will have the opportunity to share perspectives and insights as we encounter a range of differing instances where decisions about resource allocation are pertinent.

Field excursions hosted by local faculty and resource managers in Sweden will support our ability to compare and contrast the sustainability of natural resource use in a variety of settings.
