Program Description:


Australia is known for its stark beauty, bustling cities, and unique wildlife. Australia is also a land with abundant resources. So what happens when converging forces cause wildfires throughout a nation that is almost the size of the United States. How do local and regional authorities marshal the resources needed to combat the fires? And how do they determine what to do after the fires are out?

Australia’s bout of wildfires forever changed the landscape and how local communities manage their natural resources. CCSA students and faculty will meet people in Australia tasked with disaster recovery and mitigation as a lesson for all on how local, national and global decision-making impacts not only one community, but potentially, people around the globe. The program schedule includes multiple nights in Sydney and Melbourne, along with class activities outside these urban areas.

A combination of faculty-guided and student-developed activities will explore the similarities and differences of a particular discipline in each student’s home community with that of people in and around Australia. **

Exploring Resiliency and Restoration in Australia
Course Description: Experience the resiliency of Australia in the wake of recent bushfires—one of the worst natural disasters in history. In addition to learning about Australian culture while visiting Sydney and Melbourne, we’ll seek out service learning opportunities targeted at restoring habitat for Australia's wildlife. This business class will study the implications of population growth, climate change and globalization on Australia and the international business economy, while also focusing on risk management and supply chain management issues. We’ll hope to take away from this once-in-a-lifetime experience an understanding of what can minimize natural disaster damage in the future.
