Would you like to study EcoDistricts in Europe?  The University of Oregon is offering an extensive fieldtrip and research program this summer through the study abroad department. The program will be led by Dr. Deni Ruggeri (Assistant Professor of Landscape Architecture) and Anita Van Asperdt (principal landscape architect at LandCurrent and adjunct instructor in Landscape Architecture & the OLIS program)

The program is designed for and open to students in diverse fields, including PPPM, OLIS, architecture and design fields, environmental studies, and others

The “EcoDistricts in Europe” program focuses on EcoDistrict planning, development, design and implementation in the context of the European continent. In addition, the program looks at actual and potential sustainable living conditions in these districts. It offers students interested in sustainable development a unique opportunity to gain hands-on experience of new models of sustainable communities through visits and direct experience of life in various EcoDistricts.
