Alaska is a place where multiple stakeholders — corporate, governmental, native and non-native — struggle to balance consumption of natural resources with long-term sustainability. This summer, Brown University, in affiliation with the Cook Inlet Tribal Council and Kenai Peninsula College, travels to south-central Alaska to introduce students from around the world to the beauty and complexities of historic and present-day Alaska. Learning will be fast-paced, experiential, and include widely diverse perspectives.

Over the course of 2-weeks, we will explore issues Alaska Natives face when trying to balance cultural and environmental preservation with economic growth. Our lifestyle choices, world-wide, have a direct impact on the trade-offs between conservation and consumption that play out on the Alaskan stage. This program will specifically focus on current environmental issues in Alaska with application and relevance around the globe.
