Welcome to the MSU Sustainable Food, Environment and Social Systems in Australia Education Abroad 2019.

Follow this blog as we travel across Australia learning about sustainability from May 14 (depart US May 12) – June 9, 2019.

On the right side of the blog screen, you will see the student names detailing a bit about themselves and their research topics.  Each day 2 students will be our day leaders and will post an update on our day.   Click on the individual dates under daily, to view the blog for any particular day.    We also hope that you might submit a question related to sustainability for our group to respond to. If you subscribe to the blog, you will receive an email when the blog is updated.  Despite this reminder, you might want to check back regularly, as we add pictures and comments all the time. Please also note that your first comment must be approved by an instructor before it will post. After that time, you can post comments without an approval.

Thank you and enjoy your virtual travel with us.

  1. It’s a beautiful 70 degrees on Chicago this May 15,2029. How goes it in Australia on Wednesday, May 16 5 o’clock in the morning


  2. It’s 9:52 am Chicago time yet 12:52 am Aussie time. I wonder how many of the students have caught up yet with the jet lag. All of your families are very proud of you and your stated intentions and goals are noble. You truly are the future and I hope that when you assume the reins of responsibility and authority that you do so responsibly, logically And Enthusiastically. We love you all


  3. Does the Australian government encourage any of these sustainability practices through tax incentives, grants, etc.?
