I chose to study with SIT’s Social Justice and Sustainable Development program in Fortaleza because I thought it would provide a meaningful experience that could positively affect my research and activism.
Last week, the 2015 Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to the Tunisian National Dialogue Quartet [. . .] for its contributions to the peaceful democratization of Tunisia.
Overall, the SIT Study Abroad experience has been life-changing for me. It forced me to regard my time in Ecuador not through the eyes of a tourist, but as an intercultural being.
Taming the Teesta focuses on the hydroelectric dam projects that have sprung into existence along the Teesta River in India’s northeastern state of Sikkim. The film follows those who have been directly affected by this hydropower development as well as those who are fighting back at the often ill-planned and damaging mega-projects.
I have come to the understanding that there is a significant difference between going somewhere to visit and going somewhere to live.
