Central America: The People and Their Environment

This summer’s institute was the first in a four-year series that will explore Central America with a focus on people and the environment. The institute highlighted diverse topics of Central America and incorporated hands-on  activities. It focused on indigenous people’s relationship with the environment, as well as broader environmental issues regarding health, infrastructure, and land and water rights. Summer 2019 focused particularly on climate change and impacts of deforestation, environmental politics and sustainability, and access to water and its relationship to health. This summer institute series is ideal for educators of high school and community college, and pre-service students teaching History, World Geography, Science, and Environmental Science. The four-year series of institutes is sponsored by the Centers for Latin American Studies at Vanderbilt University, Tulane University, and the University of Georgia, and will be hosted at each institute over the course of the four years beginning here in summer 2019 at Vanderbilt University, with additional support from Florida International University.
