Semester Abroad: Sustainability & Eco Tourism

Indonesia is listed as one of the top 10 countries to travel to in 2019 (LonelyPlanet). Most of the tourists following this recommendation will probably end up in Bali. Therefore sustainability and eco tourism are two very important topics to focus on in order to be able to preserve the traditional Balinese culture as well as the environment despite the masses of tourists coming every day. During this 16 weeks semester program you will learn more about the Balinese life philosophy "Tri Hita Karana" and how it is implemented in tourist attractions and sights. During various field trips, you will be able to see this implementation first hand.
