Interested in completing upper division geography credits while travelling abroad and learning about urban resilience planning and policy in Germany? This summer, 15 SFU undergraduate students will travel to the European Green Capital region for 2017 to learn about urban greening, the German approach to urban planning and policy, the new buzzword urban resilience and what lies behind it. We will be hosted in Germany by our colleagues at TU-Dortmund and will also spend time throughout the Rhine-Ruhr region, in cities such as Essen, Cologne, and Bonn. Come to the information meeting at SFU Harbour Centre on Feb 2nd, 3:30 pm, where field course instructor Meg Holden will provide an overview of the content and logistical arrangements for the course, including supplementary fees, get you thinking about the learning possibilities, and respond to your questions. 

Expected dates of travel to Germany are June 18-July 2nd. Registration for the course opens soon, in March. Now is the time to start thinking about your summer. Admission to this course will be by permission of the instructor, so you definitely want to find out what it is all about and meet your potential class and travel mates at this meeting!
