207 230-4025The Center for Ecological Living and Learning (CELL) offers life-changing sustainability education programs for students who believe that they can make a difference in the world: students who would like to play an active role in creating long-term solutions to problems facing our local and global communities and environment. CELL offers college semester (and short course) programs focusing on a theme of sustainability through community. Our Middle East Program has a more specific theme of sustainability and peace through community. The purpose of any CELL experience is to ignite a life-long commitment to living sustainably and to giving and receiving support for this commitment through community. During the course of a semester program, students learn about the concepts of sustainability while living in eco-villages and learning from internationally recognized partners who are modeling how a “small group of committed people” can make a big difference in achieving local and global sustainability. At the end of a CELL program, students develop action plans that empower them to return home and employ what they have learned in their own lives and through implementing sustainability initiatives in their own communities. This individual and collective action is at the heart of what CELL is all about!
CELL currently offers programs in Iceland, Central America, and the Middle East. We are developing new programs in East Africa (Tanzania and Kenya) and a new U.S. based program that will showcase exemplary sustainable initiatives taking place in our own country. Contact us if you would like to be the change you wish to see in the world.
This is a non-campus group.
