Why do Eco-Friendly travelers like green education?

Eco-Friendly travelers like green education: When you pick an Eco-Friendly vacation the world is your classroom. All green travel is a learning experience. Education related green travel  divides into two types: One has limited use of travel and centers around a particular place or campus where participants come from all around the globe to learn. The other involves traveling during the program. Such as tours with a specific theme. Most consist of lecturers given by professors, curators, and other experts.



Characteristics of Green Education:

  • You don’t have to be intellectually oriented, but just curious about a subject
  •  You don’t have to be college or high-school graduate to take part

  • There are no exams-no papers to prepare – no home work

  •  Most educational tours include field trips, sightseeing tours, museum, and other pleasant tourist oriented activities

  Smithsonian is a leader in green educational travel:

The number one tourist attraction in Washington, DC, isn’t the White House or the Visitors Gallery in the Capital Building, It’s an hour, an afternoon, a week or a lifetime exploring diverse museum and it’s entire world  in the Smithsonian.

Smithsonian Institution offers two travel programs: Smithsonian Journeys and Smithsonian Student Travel.
