 Learn about Fair Trade, sustainability, and entrepreneurship while visiting local businesses in Punta Gorda and San Pedro, Belize. Throughout the semester you will learn about these concepts and then will see them first-hand as we visit start-up Fair Trade businesses, such as Maya Bags and Cotton Tree Chocolate, in Belize. You will be immersed in the Belizean culture during your visit through working with local farmers through Sustainable Harvest and volunteering at Holy Cross School. This 3-credit hour course will incorporate readings, guest lecturers, and movies to familiarize you with these topics within a businesses context.
