CAPA Sydney: Sustainability and Resilient Cities

Explore sustainability and environmentalism in Sydney!

Sydney is an excellent study abroad location to learn about sustainability and environmental studies. Home to the world’s first Green Party, Australia is an excellent place to study sustainability and environmental studies. As Australia’s largest city, Sydney offers numerous ways to explore these themes through a contemporary lens.

The CAPA Concentration in Sustainability and Environmental Studies offers the opportunity to explore contemporary issues such as climate change, air quality, water use, waste management, energy consumption, and building resilience in our cities while gaining an understanding of the complex cultural, economic, and political factors that influence environmental policymaking.

Classes will be taught through a combination of classroom learning and field studies, including an exploration of Aboriginal culture and heritage at Sydney Botanic Gardens; an examination of the human relationship with nature, animals, and wilderness with a trip to Taronga Zoo; and a visit to sustainability campaigner Michael Mobbs’ off-grid 19th-century terrace house in the inner city. Plus, have access to the full CAPA Sydney Global Cities curriculum. Earn 12-15 credits.
