Ithaca's specialization in environmental programs lies on three fronts:

Ithaca has developed a series of experiential learning platforms that allow students at different levels to grasp and understand key issues relating to the above areas. Clients have the choice of choosing :

  • Experiential field trips and hands on ecperiences that bring students up close to the issues & related ecosystems. Experienced educators and guides explain and show students key aspects of the three focus areas.Creative experiments and multi-sensory experiences enable to engage and interact in the environments concerned.

  • Engaging in service learning projects. Students will learn about the evironment, ecosystems and relevant key issues while engaging in service projects. They could engage in transect surveys or help design and build an interpretive centre at a National Park. This problem-based service learning approach is highly an effective and deeply impactful, student centred platform.
