Dragons partnered with Avenues: The World School to develop and run a Climate Change and Culture in Taiwan Program. They made a fantastic video of their course and time in Taiwan. Watch it below and definitely learn more about the program via this blog post. Here’s an excerpt: 

“On a recent Global Journeys program, a group of 9th and 10th graders looked closely at how climate change and sustainability relate to culture in Taiwan. Their investigation took them around the island, from the metropolis of Taipei to the tiny coastal village of Dulan, from Buddhist monasteries to urban recycling centers, remote permaculture farms to bustling night markets. Most memorably, the students spent four nights at a homestay with families from the indigenous Atayal community—a once-in-a-lifetime chance to experience the rhythms of the tribe’s daily life in the mountains (and pitch in on farm work) and learn how that way of life is being threatened by climate change.”
