Most of my current knowledge about global sustainability has come about mainly from my experience as an advocate for sustainable measures in Model United Nations. I, however, only know the facts and statistics about where environmental sustainability is common and where it is not. After learning about how Costa Rica operates on a more environmentally friendly front in a class I took last year, I jumped at the idea of being a participant of this program.
I am mainly interested in the benefits of environmentally sustainable infrastructure and implementing it in the future. I am most excited about being fully immersed in Costa Rica and experiencing the benefits of sustainability in a country with one of the smallest carbon footprints.
