Food and Social Justice
Sustainable Agriculture Systems
An IPSL Soul Travel experience to Guatemala is a sensory experience that can take participants from the black sand coasts up into the tropical mountain forests of Guatemala. You will be able to engage with indigenous and other local cultures, food, lifestyle, agriculture economy, and human, animal, and environmental health of Guatemala first-hand through expert lecturers and site visits. During your journey, you will critically examine the social, political and cultural impact of food production on the environment, animals, and people of Guatemala.
In addition to completing a variety of workshops, conversations and activities relevant to our theme, we will also indulge in the pure beauty that the Guatemalan landscape so frequently provides. From towering volcanoes to lush jungles full of life, you can expect to bear witness to a multitude of breathtaking landscapes and once in a lifetime experience.
Come join us on this once-in-a-lifetime journey to explore the intersection of food, health, animals, and the environment in Guatemala!
