Case Study: Exploring Environmental Sustainability Promising Practices in Virtual Exchange

This Stevens Initiative publication highlights three virtual exchange programs that connect young people in
different countries to develop solutions to environmental issues. An-Najah National University’s
(NNU) Green Futures Exchange brought together university students from Arizona and the
West Bank to explore sustainable engineering. IREX’s Global Solutions Sustainability Challenge
(Global Solutions) linked American community college students with Jordanian technical and
university students to pursue sustainable solutions for the hospitality industry. Finally, the Great
Rivers course allowed university students from the University of Washington Bothell (UWB) to
work with Egyptian and Peruvian university students to address issues concerning the Nile, the
Amazon, and the Columbia River systems.
