In September, the Inian Islands Institute will be visited by a group of rising sophomore students from Stanford participating in a three week field couqrse on natural resource management and sustainability. The students will learn about complex social-ecological systems through the lens of forestry, fisheries, tourism and energy by engaging with community members and the local ecosystem. Time spent at the Inian Islands Institute offers a unique space to reflect on interactions between people and their environment and strategies for tackling resource management and conservation issues.
