Review for Earth University Foundation, Atlanta, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Ever since I first heard a presentation about Earth University, I've been in love with it's philosophy, educational approach and impact on those it reaches. Earth faculty (not just "recruiters) recruit students from small towns and villages, young community leaders that may not have ever gone far from home but have leadership potential.

During the first week of school they ensure that all students are able to share their expertise creating an environment of equity and respect that crosses economic and ethnic lines.

The curriculum includes a focus on sustainable agriculture, community service and entreprenurism. All students participate in a project that creates a product or service related to sustainable agriculture that earns money. The balancing of sustainable economic development and stewardship of the earth is what we need for future generations to have a viable place on this earth our common home.
