While staying at UWCCR, participants interact with the school’s diverse student body and learn about the school’s commitment to peace, multiculturalism, and the environment. At EARTH University, GYLI participants learn first-hand from EARTH students, who come from Latin America, Africa, and Asia. Participants stay and work with local farming families, who form an agro-ecotourism cooperative that strives for sustainability in all its facets: economic, social, and environmental. Essential questions of Year 3: “What is my role as a leader in creating sustainable world systems?” “What is my relationship to the Earth?”
