Hace Calor en La Flor

Costa Rica’s Earth University – La Flor is currently hosting ten of Elon University’s Interactive Media Students for nine days. The students are working closely with Earth to help promote the school’s programs and principles by enhancing their presence on the web.

Earth University is a private, international, non-profit university dedicated to education in the agricultural sciences and natural resources in order to contribute to sustainable development in the tropics by seeking a balance between agricultural production and environmental preservation. Earth University’s philosophy is built on five principles: clean energy, clean water, clean environment, info-technology, and enterprise-entrepreneurship.

The La Flor campus is dedicated to the generation of innovative ideas aiming to promote development through an entrepreneurial spirit, social justice, technological innovation and the creation of alternatives to protect the environment. This site plays host to Earth University students as well as students from around the world for abroad opportunities. La Flor strives to have its students meet four objectives:

1.) Exhibit to participants the natural scenes in order to understand the ecology of the environment that surrounds us.
2.) Present the impacts that our ecosystems suffer from due to the improper management of our natural resources.
3.) Sensitive to participants in order to understand that with simple actions that are developed in our communities, we make a difference.
4.) Facilitate the opportunity for each participant to discover their scientific potential from inside.

La Flor has encouraged Elon’s students to enjoy and experience all Costa Rica has to offer, so that we can better understand the principles Earth was founded on. Included in the blog our videos and images of our experiences in Costa Rica, from zip lines to nature walks, this multimedia blog will not only capture your attention, but also capture your heart.

Pura Vida.
