SEED-SCALE: West Virginia and Washington, D.C.

June 13 – 25, 2020

Did you know that SEED-SCALE has been around for 25 years?! To commemorate this accomplishment, Future Generations University is offering a special field-based course in the United States that will focus on the seemingly disparate contexts of rural Pendleton County, WV and urban Washington, D.C. We would love for you to join us!


Why Take This Course?

This field-based course will give you the opportunity to explore both rural and urban U.S. through the lenses of community change and local empowerment.

You will be challenged to engage questions relevant to these areas and reflect on how they apply to your own community. For example:

  • Discover how SEED-SCALE is working and can work in both of these environments
  • Reflect together on ways to apply these insights to your community
  • Reunite with classmates, meet other alumni and current students
  • Celebrate Commencement and 25 years of SEED-SCALE

You can earn 2 credits for preparation before the course and for the in-country experience, and an additional 1 credit for a Community Lab when you return home.

Date: June 2020
