LOCATION

Newsweek has dubbed London “the coolest city on the planet.”  It is home to some of the world’s most vibrant theatre and music, outstanding museums, and ambitious architecture.  London was once the center of an empire, and today it is the political, economic and media hub of the British Isles, with an influence that continues to radiate well beyond its borders.   Many interesting cities (e.g., Bath, Brighton, Oxford) and tourist attractions (e.g., Stonehenge) are within easy reach, and a designated long weekend allows students to travel further afield in the UK and the rest of Europe.


PROJECTS

At the London Project Center, many projects deal directly with sustainable development in the urban environment.  Sustainable development is at the intersection of environment, economy and social equity.  Student teams work with local government agencies and NGOs on strategies to encourage recycling, and increase the use of renewable energy and they work with the disadvantaged on community development.  An equally large share of project activity supports education and outreach activities at famous museums, such as the British Museum, the Museum of Science, and the London Transport Museum. The London Center projects challenge students with important problems that make a real difference to the project sponsors and the citizens they serve.
