Capstone: Sustainable Rural Development in NW Argentina

Argentina Capstone: Sustainable Rural Development in NW Argentina
San Pedro de Colalao, Tucuman Province

Program Dates: February 17 — March 9, 2013
Where the pampas meet the Andes and tradition blends with modernity, nested on a valley 3,000 feet above sea level, sits San Pedro de Colalao, a small town in Northwestern Argentina. Join us this Winter term in a capstone where we will work with community organizations in sustainable rural development.

We start with over 3 days in Buenos Aires, followed by two weeks in San Pedro de Colalao, where we will meet with town authorities and business people, explore natural and cultural attractions and visit with rural inhabitants, academics and NGOs. Our final report will evaluate the progress made during our stay, and suggest steps that the community and future capstones may undertake.
