Enjoy daily forest, hill, and mountain hikes in the heart of Italy. Explore sites in and around the medieval walled city of Assisi, hometown of St. Francis (inspirer of Pope Francis), including organic farm, olive oil, cheese & wine producer tours. Dialogue with regional leaders in sustainability; learn how the European Union and Italy’s greenest province envision our environmental future; discuss business ethics. Re-trace St. Francis’s steps, study music about caring for the Earth, and participate in Jesuit/Ignation reflection. Re-charge with “slow” family-style Italian meals and local food, as your new ideas in ecological economics, culture and spirituality evolve around simplicity and complexity. Top it off by sampling the local gelato flavors…and earn 6 credits (9 possible with instructor permission).
