A brief description of the sustainability-focused immersive experience(s) offered by the institution:

The Center for Environmental Studies offers "Sustainable Eleuthera: Eleutherans’ Views of Energy and Climate Change" during the Winter Study Term. The main focus of the course is environmental sustainability. While living and studying at a school (the Island School), and an environmental research facility (the Cape Eleuthera Institute), students learn
sustainable methods of resource management using the island as a classroom. The overarching educational goal is to understand the social, political
and economic dynamics that are impoverishing the natural resources and the people of Eleuthera and to
find solutions that will help to create a self-sustaining resource-based island economy while also
developing an environmentally sensitive tourist economy.
