About

The award-winning Sustainable Action program is a look behind the curtain of Costa Rica’s renown commitment to sustainability.

Is Costa Rica a fitting role model for larger nations? How did it come to be such a visible example of success in environmental conservation? Is there more to the picture than what we know of the Costa Rican “”success story?””

The program focuses on economic, environmental, and socio-cultural aspects of sustainability. You'll travel with a group from the capital city of San José to the outdoor hotspots of Monteverde and La Fortuna, with the option to add time at the beach. With visits to local organizations, you’ll explore key topics in sustainable development such as climate change, land conservation, wildlife protection, and access to education. Stay active along the way with hiking, swimming in waterfalls, hot springs, and more!
