About Program

Do you want to be part of the solution? Ecothropic will give you experience and skills in sustainability and regeneration you need to work with and to lead the world’s best businesses and organizations.

We are facing a global water crisis. Using Baja California Sur as our classroom, we will explore desert mountains, oasis, coastal cities, and the sea that has been nicknamed the aquarium of the world. We will meet ranchers, activists, scientists, and policy makers. During 11 days of adventure, discussions, and new experiences, we will learn about how water flows through the landscape, how human management can create water or drought, the linkage between international markets and local people, and think critically about the tools we have for addressing and avoiding water crises. Through good information and first-hand experiences, you will leave with the skills to help create water secure futures in the face of the water and climate crises.

cultural and communal perspectives on climate-change resilience in Chiapas

I've traveled with Ecothropic to Chiapas. The
program enriched my understanding and left me contemplating the multi-faceted impact of climate-change and the approaches needed for communities to adapt and thrive. While visiting a coffee farm, the farmers shared how they formed a co-op, engaged with fair trade buyers to sell their coffee, and diversified their crops, all while meeting social challenges in their community. From the city markets to the farms and from the coast, along the river, and in the jungle, we met people from different communities who shared their perspective, experience, and knowledge.
