What is Earth Expeditions?

Earth Expeditions is a one-of-a-kind global education program supporting university courses, degree programs, and collaborative projects in Africa, Asia, Australia, and the Americas. Through Earth Expeditions courses, our mission is to build an alliance of individuals with firsthand knowledge of inquiry-driven, community-based learning for the benefit of ecological communities, student achievement, and global understanding.

Travel to pivotal hotspots worldwide to engage in inquiry and co-action projects on vital social and conservation issues. Build relationships with classroom teachers, informal educators, and community leaders as you work side-by-side with some of the top visionaries on the planet.

From home or work, all students collaborate with faculty and classmates in Dragonfly Workshops, an easy-to-use web-based learning community created by Project Dragonfly. Students worldwide discuss assignments, develop projects, and share ideas throughout the fall semester. To learn more about this unique Web experience, visit https://www.dragonflyworkshops.org/.
