Here in the Netherlands we are known for our excellence in sustainable business practices, both national and global companies recognized for promoting and championing sustainability. That is why together TRG and CIEE designed a program for students interested in learning more about the new, up and coming world of sustainable business, in a country of unique cultural and societal characteristics. A combination of classroom work with guest lectures, company visits/excursions, and community engagement activities provide students with first hand experiences to better understand the Dutch sustainable business culture. During the business and sustainability course students learn about sustainable business in the Netherlands and throughout the world. The course begins with an overview of culture and history that gives context to the contemporary sustainability and leadership practices here in the Netherlands. TheRockGroup provides guided site visits and discusses successful business case studies and promote creativity and sustainable practices in the business world.
